Morrisville-based Monitech Inc., North Carolina’s sole provider of the breath alcohol ignition interlock devices used by some drivers convicted of drunk driving, has reported a data breach affecting 49,000 state residents.
In a notice mailed to those customers and posted on the company’s website, the company disclosed that a laptop computer had been stolen from a service vehicle in New Hanover County on September 9. The computer contained the names of Monitech customers in North Carolina and other information, including addresses, dates of birth, vehicle identification numbers, and license and plate numbers. It did not, however, contain Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers “or other financial information typically used by identity thieves,” the company said on its website.
