As I’ve said, I have given up SelectQuote customer records to the Secret Service. This is a bit of a bummer. Their position is that I ceased to be authorized to hold those records. Mine is that since I was given the records after I no longer worked for SelectQuote, and signed no agreement, there were no provisions to revoke my right to the data.
That might make for an interesting legal argument, if I weren’t the one facing pretrial detention and confiscation of my computers. So I have lost the marketing angle of sending out data breach notification emails. It is unclear how well those would have gone over anyway. By cooperating with authorities, there is less chance of a public relations backfire.
Bob Edwards came to my workplace to talk the same kind of turkey he did before the well-oiled set-up that ran me out of SelectQuote Insurance Services. This, along with the position of the Secret Service, would seem to indicate that everyone admits that a breach has taken place. This places responsibilities upon SelectQuote, such as notification of affected customers.
Meanwhile, criminal matters ensnaring employees, and labor issues continue to dog SelectQuote Senior in Kansas City. Another case of online impersonation of an ex-SelectQuote employee popped-up. Impersonation was once again tried with me.
