The laptop stolen from the VA employee's home that contained personal data on 26.5 million veterans and active duty personnel was recovered. FBI analysis indicates the data was never accessed. This is certainly great news. http://www.nist.org/news.php?extend.145
But the problems within the government still exist. Many agencies facing a major disruption of IT services in 45 days.
Also, the VA Chief Information Officer (CIO) resigned today.
