The article discusses why Iron Mountain Inc. still loses bank tapes despite the passage of the data breach notification law in California. According to Enterprise Strategy Group analyst Lauren Whitehouse, about 19% of banks depend solely on tape for backup storage but many banks started to use combination of tape and disk or electronic storage. John Connors said that the problem is that data breach laws do not distinguished between a hack and a lost tape.
