Employee information stolen from Boeing

November 19, 2005


— A laptop computer that contained Social Security numbers and other personal information for 161,000 Boeing Co. employees and retirees has been stolen, the company said Friday.

Boeing said it had no evidence that any of the information - which included birthdays and banking information in some cases - was accessed or misused.

No sensitive company information was stored on the computer, which was owned by the company but stolen from a non-Boeing site several days ago, officials said.

Boeing spokesman Tim Neale said an employee had taken the laptop from the office and it later disappeared.

Chicago-based Boeing said it is notifying affected employees and helping them enroll in fraud-alert programs at the nation's three major credit-reporting agencies.
