Update: Tape containing information on 2M mortgage customers found

An update to my earlier post: The Canadian Privacy Law Blog: Incident: Tape containing records of 2 million mortgagors lost ...

The tape in question has been found, the company has announced. It apparently was in the local courier facility without its airbill attached. See: ABN Amro US mortgage unit retrieves lost data tape.

The company has also announced that it has suspended moving customer data by tape and will switch to encrypted, electronic communications.
