Prince Charles Latest To Lose Data From Laptop Theft
from the breach-of-the-crown dept
It’s a little hard to imagine an identity thief trying to pass themselves off as Prince Charles, but as reader Jimmy alerts us, the heir to the throne did have personal data on a laptop that was stolen from his accountant. Apparently, the Prince is quite worried about the loss. At this point, it hardly needs repeating that it’s a bad idea to keep personal data directly on laptops, given the ease with which they can be stolen. While the Prince probably doesn’t have too much to worry about, we just hope he’s been offered a free year’s worth of credit monitoring to alleviate his anguish.
