Morgan Stanley fires employee who leaked sensitive client data
Investment bank Morgan Stanley has fired an employee who briefly posted account names and numbers for 900 clients on the Internet.
Law enforcement has been contacted about the employee, who was not identified in a news release on Monday. Morgan Stanley officials couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
All told, the employee stole partial client information for 10 percent of its Wealth Management customers, a brokerage and investment advisory service for high net-worth people.
That data did not include account passwords or Social Security numbers, Morgan Stanley said. There is “no evidence of any economic loss to any client,” it said.
