HQMC MANPOWER INFORMATION SYSTEMS DIVISION (MI) WAS NOTIFIED
ON 14 MARCH 2006 BY A NAVAL POST GRADUATE SCHOOL STUDENT THAT A
THUMB DRIVE CONTAINING PARTIAL RECORDS OF 207,750 MARINES HAD BEEN
LOST. THE DRIVE WAS BEING USED FOR A RESEARCH PROJECT AND
CONTAINED PRIVACY ACT DATA TO INCLUDE NAME, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER,
MARITAL STATUS, AND ENLISTMENT CONTRACT INFORMATION. BECAUSE THE
DATA WAS SAVED IN AN ENCODED SOFTWARE FORMAT THAT IS IN LIMITED
DISTRIBUTION AND THE LOCATION OF THE LOSS WAS ABOARD A GOVERNMENT
INSTALLATION, THE RISK ASSOCIATED WITH THE DATA LOSS IS CONSIDERED
TO BE RELATIVELY LOW. TO DATE, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THE INFORMATION
HAS BEEN COMPROMISED. THE NAVAL POST GRADUATE SCHOOL IS CURRENTLY
CONDUCTING A DETAILED INVESTIGATION TO DETERMINE THE FACTS
SURROUNDING THE CASE.
