Local insurance company loses client data

So it’s not just the Americans who are poor at client data security – the South Africans have got into the act as well. Local insurance firm Zurich SA said it had lost a tape containing client information. Apparently the backup tape was lost during a routing tape transfer to a data storage centre in August ( why are we only hearing about this now? ). KPMG is leading an investigation into the loss and expects to release a report at the end of November.
