#8 CGI: The consulting firm CGI found itself in deep kimchi after one of its employees had a laptop stolen that contained personal and financial data from 283,000 New York City retirees. The laptop was stolen from a Korean restaurant at 8:30 p.m. on a Saturday night in August 2007. The consultant was working on a project for New York City's Financial Information Services Agency. The city's controller later demanded that CGI pay for credit protection measures for the city's pensioners who were put at risk for identity theft.
