This is very close to what my reaction was.
You know, where do people like that get off taking such data home with
them. But now I have to cool off a bit because if I don't I'll just stay
mad and I don't want that. After cooling off, I'm better able to look at the
situation objectively.
1 As to what has happened. It looks like the people who took the data home
violated the law.
2 As to the future. I hope that the organizations who everyone blames will
devise better policies and procedures.

...a serious turn for the worse...My first reaction is, how could he have
been so ! -at- $#! stupid? ... My second reaction is, whatever their pre-existing
policy of not taking such data home, or of working on it remotely, he should
be fired for almost-criminal negligence. There is a world of information out
there, not just on the Net but in mainstream news, about the dangers of
identity theft. In such a situation, the idea of someone taking such a huge
mass of confidential information outside a secure location is
incomprehensible to me. Thank Christ he didn't work in the agency that
secures nuclear weapon stockpiles...
