AICPA Paging All "Where's Waldo" Sleuths

Some 300,000 AICPA members have to worry today about a lost hard drive which includes names, addresses and social security numbers of members. Apparently, the hard drive had been damaged and an unnamed AICPA employee sent it out for repair without following AICPA protocol. After considerable searching by AICPA and FedEx personnel, the decision was made to notify AICPA members. Additional information is available at www.aicpa.org/privacyinfo .

As an AICPA member, it is obviously unsettling to hear this type of news. Nevertheless, at least at this point, there is no evidence of anything more than an embarrassing incident for the AICPA.
