About the hard drive

According to various reports, Morgan Stanley has to pay around $35 million to put allegations regarding the company failing to dispose of the hard drives with personal data to rest. “While MSSB recovered some of the devices, which were shown to contain thousands of pieces of unencrypted customer data, the firm has not recovered the vast majority of the devices,” the SEC said in a statement. “MSSB’s failures, in this case, are astonishing. Customers entrust their personal information to financial professionals with the understanding and expectation that it will be protected, and MSSB fell woefully short in doing so,” said Gurbir S. Grewal, director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division. “If not properly safeguarded, this sensitive information can end up in the wrong hands and have disastrous consequences for investors. Today’s action sends a clear message to financial institutions that they must take seriously their obligation to safeguard such data.”“We have previously notified applicable clients regarding these matters, which occurred several years ago, and have not detected any unauthorized access to, or misuse of, personal client information,” said Susan Siering, a spokesperson for Morgan Stanley.In a statement given to TechCrunch, Morgan Stanley didn’t admit or deny the findings, but said it is “pleased to be resolving this matter.”
