Laptops stolen from the Insolvency Service

Insolvency Service reports break-in at its premises

The Insolvency Service has had the personal details of insolvency
practitioners stolen from its offices. Four laptops were taken in the theft but
three had no information on them.

The IT equipment that does have information also contained details of former
directors from 122 companies that had become insolvent, creditors and investors.

The theft was reported to Greater Manchester Police when staff realised that
the laptops had been stolen.

In a statement the IS said it was ‘working with Greater Manchester Police to
try to recover the computers that were stolen from its premises.’

The IS has written to all those that it believes may be affected by the theft
and has set up dedicated help lines to answer any queries.

If you are an insolvency practitioner who has received a letter or has a
query relating to this matter, the IS has asked that they be contacted via
email: IPPolicy.Section@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk
