A laptop containing sensitive and unencrypted personal data on current and former employees of Agilent Technologies was stolen from the car of an Agilent vendor.

Agilent blamed the San Jose vendor, Stock & Option Solutions, for failing to scramble or otherwise safeguard the data - in violation of the contracted agreement.
