A laptop containing personal data, including addresses and telephone 
numbers, of 7,800 children who use school transport in Surrey has been 
stolen from a car.

The computer belonged to an employee of Trapeze, a software contractor. 
The information had been given in encrypted form by the council to the 
contractor, but the data on the laptop was not encrypted, in breach of 
Trapeze policy. The employee has been suspended. The stolen information 
included the contact details of children in mainstream and special needs 
schools.
