The agency reported the case to Congress on Friday, saying the loss represented 'a major information security incident' and described the data as 'controlled unclassified information, including privacy information.' The FDIC has had similar problems with bank records walking out the door on removable media. In those cases, the agency considered the data breaches to be 'inadvertent' copying of personal banking information that happened when departing employees were copying personal information to removable media, Lawrence Gross Jr., according to the FDIC's CIO.
