We received a letter from the state yesterday, informing us that (at least) the personal data on our youngest child had been comprimised (my bet is that that of our whole family likely has been too).

My problem is not only with those who stole the information, but the state (and/or one of their agents) who left the vault door open; (or unprotected), so to speak, making the theft possible.

If you left money at a bank, and they didnt put it in a vault (or invest it safely), and it was stolen, would you only blame the thief?

Giving victims one year free on Experians program to monitor credit is, IMO, insufficient. Who was/were the apparently negligent person/s who allowed this to happen?

I'm wondering why the data base wasn't incrypted.
