Contact: Susan Wheeler
Washington, DC – Idaho’s Congressional Delegation is calling on the Department of Energy (DOE) for improved security measures regarding employees. The request comes following a potential identity theft threat involving information from 59,000 present and former workers at the Idaho National Laboratory at Idaho Falls. Delegation members were notified today by DOE that an encoded disc containing personal data from the employees was either lost or stolen in transit via United Parcel Service. The package originally shipped from New York to Maryland was found damaged.
