TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- State officials say the theft of a mobile device at a Florida Department of Juvenile Justice office has compromised thousands of records that include personal information.
The DJJ reported the security breach to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Friday. On Jan. 2, the DJJ reported the theft of a mobile device containing youth and employee records to the Tallahassee Police Department, which is currently investigating the theft. The DJJ has also notified the Office of Information Security.
Officials say the device was not encrypted or password-protected as required by the DJJ's technology policy.
The DJJ confirms that more than 100,000 records may have been compromised. The agency says it's working to determine the affected individuals and notify them.
