Submission + - SAIC has data theft effecting 4.9 Million people (informationweek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Government contractor SAIC just can't seem to get a break. Still fresh off of the Citytime scandal (http://yro.slashdot.org/story/11/06/30/2025206/nyc-mayor-demands-600m-refund-on-software-project) they have now had a data breech where backup tapes of 4.9 Million personnel health records were stolen out of an employees car overnight. To add insult to injury, evidently the tapes were not encrypted either: "Tricare did not indicate whether SAIC encrypted the information on the stolen tapes, but Raley said, "It's very hard to encrypt a backup tape.""
