Identity Theft?

I'm not in my happy place right now with my supervisor. (I use that term loosely since she has no clue about this industry)  Well, she had to send out some information on some us employees to a customer.  This information had personally identifiable information on it(ie name, date of birth, social security number, maiden name).  She gets real crazy with the cc function of email all the time.  Well, this information was cc'd to about 7 people who didn't need to know this information.  One of these people I have a history with and I question her ethics to my grave.  Some of these people are not internal employees.  Great.  So now they all have all my personal information.  I'm giving the owner a week to figure out a plan of attack to prevent identity theft otherwise I'm going to the state.  Any other thoughts besides Exlax in her lunch?

At my wife's place of work, someone stole a manager's laptop.

So, everyone who had their personal information that was in the stolen laptop got 2 years of identity theft protection.

Her company paid for it.

That could be a route that you could go.
