Thousands of customers left vulnerable as data storage device goes missing 


Police are investigating a data breach at RSA which has left thousands of Lloyds bank customers vulnerable. 

The data storage device went missing at the end of July, which was reported stolen. The data has not been misused as of yet. 

The breach affects RSA emergency home cover for Lloyds Premier Bank. 

The policy comes as standard with the £25-a-month packaged account.

RSA has sent letters to its customers. The bank could not say how many customers are affected. 

An RSA spokesman said: “We are working with the police on a full investigation and although there is no evidence to suggest the data has been misused in any way, we are offering identity protection with Cifas for two years to provide reassurance to these customers who have been affected.”
