Ohio Says It Will Hire Computer Security Expert To Investigate Data Theft.
Listen to the Story
Ohio Governor Ted Strickland today will ask the State Controlling Board for money to hire a computer security expert. The request comes in the wake of a theft of a comnputer device containing personal information on tens of thousands of state workers and their dependents.
Officials have said accessing the data would require special equipment and expertise. But, the state plans to write to financial institutions, alerting them that customers’ information may have been compromised.
The state announced Friday that an Office of Management and Budget intern left the device in his car, instead of taking it into his home as part of a practice meant to keep the data safe. Governor Strickland has ordered an end to the practice of employees taking the devices home.
