(Credit: Yomiuri Shimbun via AP Images) Tokyo (CNN) — Going out for drinks or partying after work probably sounds like a good idea, but a worker in Japan is likely to have a hangover that lasts more than a few days. An anonymous worker lost a USB stick containing the personal data of all residents of the city of Amagasaki, northwest of Osaka, Japan, after going out for drinks this week, according to a statement issued Thursday by the city government. city. Public broadcaster NHK reported that the worker, a man in his 40s, fell asleep on the street after drinking alcohol at a restaurant. When he woke up, his bag containing the flash drive was gone. The man works for a company tasked with providing tax-exempt household benefits, according to the city government statement. On Tuesday, he went to the information center of the city administration and transferred the residents’ data to a USB stick. The data included the names, dates of birth and addresses of 465,177 people, according to the statement, that is, the entire population of the city. The flash drive also contained sensitive information, including tax details, bank account names and numbers, and information about households receiving public assistance, such as childcare payments. On Wednesday, the clerk searched for the flash drive but couldn’t find it, so he filed a lost property report with police, according to the government statement. Later that afternoon, the company notified city authorities of the loss. The flash drive is encrypted and no data leak has yet been confirmed, authorities said in the statement. He added that although the employee had been authorized to access the data, he had not been given permission to transfer it to a separate electronic device. The statement also criticized the employee for not erasing the data on the flash drive after completing his work at the city office and for personally carrying it instead of using a safer method of transportation. Authorities held a press conference on Thursday, in which the city’s mayor and other officials apologized to residents. The city will make payments to eligible households without delay and provide more information about the case while they investigate, the official statement said, ending with a reminder for government employees to get permission before removing flash drives from offices.
