HRSDC loses nonencrypted hard drive with sensitive info, Class action lawsuit ensues

HRSDC dun goof'd

edit; affects all students in Canada with student loans, call 1-866-885-1866 to see if your information has been compromised (via El_Bastardo)

Basically the HRSDC holds sensitive info like SIN, loan balances, addresses, etc. for people with student loans. They lost a hard drive with over 580,000 student's info which was not encrypted.
They are offering free credit monitoring through equifax for six years.
People are pissed so they are suing.

Victims of HRSDC student loan privacy breach banding together and fighting back | Toronto Star

Quote:
Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) discovered last November that an external, non-encrypted hard drive containing the social insurance numbers, names, birth dates, addresses and student loan balances of about 583,000 people had gone missing.
The hard drive also contained personal contact information for about 250 HRSDC employees.
The government notified the federal privacy commissioner — whose office is investigating the incident — and referred the matter to the RCMP before telling the public about it on Jan. 11.

the govt. has been losing a lot of personal information lately there was a usb stick with a lot of info lost as well


i expect more sinister reasons than simply "misplacing" this info though

i imagine some employees decided to steal the info to sell etc

It affects us. I'm on the list, so is my friend. Both B.C. students

Call 1-866-885-1866 to find out if you're on the list. Be nice to them. They're only call center people. They have to read the script all damn day and I can imagine they've gotten yelled at more than a couple of times.

Its not their fault.

I love how they're being awfully quiet about such a big issue.

Hey, I'm just glad they went public about this. Often times something big like this, you'd expect a coverup from the government.

Just called(thanks guys!) and found out that my information was on the list.

Like so many things in life, I now sit and hope that the government that caused the issue will solve it, as there really isn't anything else I can do-until in 15 years the results of the class action suit divides a 1 million settlement between 580k plaintiffs and I get a check for 2 bucks in the mail.

You're not affected. Unless you somehow attended post-secondary/got a student loan while you were in elementary lol
