For years and years people have been pointing out that all those suggestions on how to avoid having your identity from getting stolen are pretty much useless considering how many ID theft scams are really inside jobs from companies who have access to all your data. So, of course, now that we're seeing all of these massive data leaks (some accidental, some on purpose by inside employees), we're hearing, yet again, that inside employees are one of the biggest issues in identity theft. Of course, if everyone has known this for so many years, how come no one's done anything about it? All of these companies that let minimum wage employees have full access to all your data and trusted them not to be tempted when scammers offer them $10 per report should be held responsible for not putting in place better systems to protect your data. This isn't a new problem by any means, and the fact that these companies chose to ignore it seems like negligence on their part.
