    Received mention of this in email today... It's good to hear that after several problems, the companies in question are taking steps to secure the financial records of their customers. This does leave people's accounts (who might have been on those lost backup tapes) in question though...

    I do wonder why a smaller percentage of financial service companies take steps to protect their data backup tapes before shipping them via UPS or whatever, then do business in general :suprised:

    good. Never understood why computer to computer backups didt take off faster. less maintance. But i guess encryted backuptapes for my finacial data will be a good idea.
