A steel cabinet was discovered missing on November 18.  The cabinet had a safe which contained IT data and software backup tapes.  Personal information on the backup tapes included names, Social Security numbers, addresses, financial account numbers, driver's license numbers, medical information and other personal information.  The cabinet was most likely thrown out during a cleaning.  If so, the cabinet and its contents would have been taken to a transfer station, crushed, and then transported to a landfill for further destruction and disposal.
