Advantage Financial Services

On March 7, 2018, the Organization discovered that its offices had been broken into the previous night. The Organization determined that a number of items had been stolen, including a computer. The computer was password protected and the biometric facial reader was activated. There was a separate password to access the email application. The Organization stated it was highly unlikely that any personal information was stored locally on the computer and its internal investigation of the breach did not find evidence to suggest otherwise. The Organization reset passwords for all web applications that had access to client data and instructions were sent to the computer to erase all content should the computer ever attempt to reconnect to an internet connection.
