+ - Hundreds of bank account details left in pub->

twoheadedboy writes: "Another day, yet another data fail. Two companies have been found in breach of the Data Protection Act after tens of thousands of tenants’ details were left at a London pub, alongside 800 records with bank account details. A contractor who had stored data from two different companies on an unencrypted USB drive was responsible. We've all lost things on a night out, but rarely is it other people's banking information. The two firms involved have been told to get a grip on their security procedures, but they escaped a fine from the ICO."
