I worked at a tech company, three times my personal data was put at risk because someone at HR left their laptop in their car during a night on the town.

I asked if my personal data was stored in files downloaded to the laptop, they said yes.

When I asked why my data needed to be downloaded to the laptop and not limited to just online access they stopped responding.

This of course was the same company who mailed me my co-workers salary in spreadsheet form, twice because my name was similar to another manager.

Why that was necessary was beyond me too.
