UNI official doubts laptop was source of ID theft

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — University of Northern Iowa officials doubt one of the unencrypted laptops noted in a state audit was the source of the mass identity theft at the university.

A state audit report released last July said auditors found that encryption software had not been installed on all laptop computers and portable storage devices that could store sensitive information.

Dozens of university employees have reported that they're victims of identity theft, following a data breach at the school.

Director of UNI relations Scott Ketelsen says UNI officials have no reason to believe an unencrypted laptop is the source. Ketelsen says all the machines "that have even a remote chance of any kind of personal or sensitive information on it have been encrypted since 2006."
