A laptop was recently stolen from the Berkely campus that contained personal information (including SSN) for more than 98,000 graduate students (or people that applied to grad school) at the college. What's more interesting about this latest heist is that this is primarily being made public because California is one of the only states in the country which has a law requiring companies to notify the public if they have a security breach. We'd never know about these things in most other parts of the country.
