Worker Loses a Laptop With Data on Thousands Who Filed Claims


BP PLC said Tuesday that a company laptop containing personal information on thousands of people who filed claims related to the Deepwater Horizon disaster has been missing for about a month.

The laptop, which belonged to a BP employee, was lost on a business-related trip in early March, the oil company said. This week, it sent out letters to 13,000 people who had filed claims.

A spreadsheet used to track claims held names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates and Social Security numbers of claimants, according to BP, which has offered free credit-monitoring services to people it believes were affected.
