Leaks happen all the time
Not exactly an IT related story, but quite a few years ago I rented a storage unit. Right near mine in the passageway was stacked some cardboard boxes falling apart and spilling their contents.. I had a quick peak and they were jammed full of job applications. Obviously HR had offloaded their hiring records off site. Boxes and boxes of names addresses, schooling, past employment records. The name on the boxes, Thales at Crawley.
