From the SC data breach blog:  "A portable data-storage device containing the sensitive personal information for all current employees of North Carolina-based FairPoint Communications has gone missing."

The device contained everything needed for identity theft including birth dates and social security numbers.

A comprehensive remote management solution would have allowed the company to remotely delete all contents of the device before it could be accessed.  Regulatory authorities could be presented with an audit log showing when and where the drive was deleted.  The alternative is to pay for credit monitoring, risk lawsuits and receive an entry in the infamous Data Breach Blog.
