JUNEAU - A spokeswoman for Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell says he's among the more than 77,000 current and former state employees whose personal information was lost by a major accounting firm.
State officials announced the missing data, and a settlement with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, on Thursday.
Officials said the settlement will provide credit protections, ranging from credit monitoring to reimbursement for losses that might arise from any identity theft. Attorney General Dan Sullivan said PricewaterhouseCoopers discovered it had lost the data in early December but didn't notify the state until last week.
Sullivan said the data includes names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers for people in the public employee and teachers' retirement systems in 2003 and 2004.
