How do you 'lose' data exactly?
I'm confused. I am aware of recent problems where laptops, CDs, DVDs and memory sticks have been lost/mislaid, and they had sensitive data on them. I'm ok with that. Something physical that has data on it.
From what I have read, Zurich 'lost' some data while transferring over to a 3rd party for archiving. I also understand that no customers have suffered financially as a result. I conclude then that while the data got 'lost', it did not fall into enemy hands.
So where did it go? Into the interwebs? All them little bits and bytes leaking out into people's routers and networks. How clumsy.... and how unfortunate to have been fined such a large amount for 'losing' some data. I also understand that it took Zurich quite a while to realise that the data had been 'lost' and to admit same.
Is anyone else similarly confused?
