    I couldn’t agree with you more – unfortunately, Fidelity’s response just feels like they are “saying” the right thing. I’m not sure they are capable of following up and “doing” the right thing. After all, if you read the blog you’ll see that Fidelity’s initial response to me was that Fidelity is not in the practice of storing this type of information on a laptop. Oh really? Well, they did!… And, what will prevent this from happening again – especially since they don’t appear to have a check and balance system in place when an employee decides to load this type of information on their laptop.
