Wells Fargo to laptop-losing auditor: buh-bye

Via David Lazarus, writing about yet another lost laptop, this one belonging to an an outside auditor working for Wells Fargo:

“The auditor had this information because we are required by the Internal Revenue Service to have our health plans audited by independent, qualified public accountants,” said Julia Tunis, a Wells spokeswoman. “The auditor is no longer auditing any of our plans.”

Well imagine that!

    Have you noticed a number of these breaches provoke a variation on the old “the devil made me do it!” excuse? For example, “the IRS made us do it!” Or, “Sarbanes-Oxley made us do it!”
