The personal information of current and former Regions employees was lost in November after an auditor from Ernst & Young mailed a flash drive and decryption code. The envelope arrived with the decryption code, but no flash drive. The data included information related to 401k retirement plans.  Names, Social Security numbers, and possibly dates of birth were on the flash drive.  Regions employs about 27,000 people in 16 states.
