Leeds Rhinos lose player data laptop

Absolute Data’s Phil Brining has worked in the field of professional sport since 1999 and was alarmed to read a report in the Yorkshire Post that a lap top computer containing player details including training, coaching and medical data had been stolen along with a handful of USB memory sticks containing a raft of data about players, and the Club’s training methods. Not only is this highly sensitive commercial data for the Club to lose, but it is also sensitive personal data relating to Rhinos players. The laptop was stolen during a burglary of the house of one of the Rhino’s coaching staff.  There was no comment as to whether the laptop or the portable media were protected in anyway. Tough questions will now be asked of Leeds Rhinos about this incident.
