GAP's Security Breach

GAP is the latest company to cough up the personal data of people affiliated with their company. This time it wasn't customers or employees but rather job applicants. That's unfortunate for the notification process which will undoubtedly be more difficult since they will not have ready access to all of those people.
The company said the stolen laptop contained personal information for people who applied online or by phone for store positions with the company's Old Navy, Banana Republic, Gap and Outlet stores from the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada between July 2006 and June 2007.
Each time one of those data breaches I always think "How could they be so stupid· It's not like someone hacked into their main system and stole the data" and this is no exception.
