A computer hard-drive containing personal client information of The Co-operators Life Insurance Co. has been recovered by the Regina police authorities. The hard-drive was reported stolen last week from a storage facility owned by ISM Canada.
A statement released by The Co-operators says the hard-drive will be subject to a police forensic examination. Initial indications suggest that information on the hard-drive was not “targeted” or used in any manner, the statement adds. “The Co-operators is relieved the hard-drive has been found and we look forward to confirmation that information on the hard-drive has not been misused,” says company chief operating officer Dan Thornton.
