I would like to add that about a year ago sensitive employee information was lost at SLAC as HR hired an identity thief as a temp worker. Notices did not reach all effected employees for lack of current information.
I wonder if Stanford has current contact email addresses for all 72,000 victims. Also I would like to remind Randy Livingston that 2 x 0 = 0.

If by any chance the information on the unsecured laptop was indeed the dump of the HR application - containing ssn, phone numbers etc - Stanford better pay close attention to their own information security and the types of downloads the application allows !
