The $301 million Piedmont Advantage Credit Union notified its 46,000 members it has lost a laptop that contained member data.

“On Jan. 31, 2015, we discovered that there was a credit union owned laptop that could not be located,” wrote Judy Tharp, CEO of the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based cooperative in an undated latter to members. “While incidents like this are not uncommon, it is a first occurrence for us. Piedmont Advantage has engaged law enforcement and hired a computer forensic firm to investigate the matter. The laptop included password protected authentication designed to prevent unauthorized access, and at this time to the best of our knowledge, no data on the laptop has been accessed.”
