A computer that was swiped from a car in Charleston last year contained 
personal financial information on 84,000 University of North Dakota 
donors, it was disclosed this week.

The missing laptop belonged to Daniel Island-based software giant 
Blackbaud Inc., which stressed Tuesday that all of the information was 
password-protected and encrypted. It also said it was not aware of any 
data breaches.

Blackbaud said the employee responsible for the computer violated 
company policy by keeping the data too long. The information belonged to 
the University of North Dakota's foundation and alumni association. 
Blackbaud's specialty is developing financial software and services for 
nonprofit fundraising organizations.

Jake Marcinko, the company's manager of information security and 
monitoring, said in a statement that the two groups were notified 
immediately about the theft.
