State Street: Data stolen from vendor - The Boston Globe

State Street Corp. said yesterday that a disk drive containing personal details from 5,500 employees and 40,000 customer accounts was stolen from the office of another firm hired for data analysis.

The incident could leave individuals open to identity theft and is the latest example to show how financial companies can be vulnerable to the physical loss of devices storing information, no matter how strong their online safeguards.
