Information on as many as 17,000 workers at risk By Chris Reidy, Globe Staff
Iron Mountain Inc., a Boston data-storage firm, apologized yesterday for losing personal data, including Social Security numbers, for thousands of Long Island Rail Road employees.
The railroad is an Iron Mountain customer. The loss was discovered April 6 by an Iron Mountain driver when backup tapes with employees' personal data were being transferred between locations.
At risk are as many as 17,000 current or former railroad employees, according to a report in Newsday yesterday.
