FDIC Alerts Employees of Data Breach

Privacy Breach for FDIC employees went for a year and a half without disclosure according to this Washington Post article. Last Friday, the same day a loss of 40 million credit card numbers was disclosed, this smaller incident was quietly revealed in letters to victims of the employee records theft and abuse. This case proves clearly that disclosure laws are mandatory by demonstrating the delays in discovering security breaches. Many leaks and thefts are not discovered immediately and once they are known, they must be made immediately disclosed to identity theft victims or potential victims.
