38k Georgetown Students, Alumni, Faculty Exposed to ID Theft
A hard drive containing the Social Security numbers of nearly 40,000 Georgetown students, alumni, faculty and staff was reported stolen from the office of Student Affairs on Jan. 3, potentially exposing thousands of students to identity theft.
The hard drive was not encrypted, meaning that information on the drive can be obtained by unauthorized parties, Lambert said. He was unsure if the hard drive was password-protected.
