    BALTIMORE (AP) — A new audit says Baltimore’s information technology department lost key data during May’s ransomware attack because some of the agency’s workers stored files on their individual computers rather than an external cloud system.

    The Baltimore Sun reports the city’s top watchdog said many employees store important information only on their own computers rather than backing up the data using cloud storage as recommended..."

    And this is some earth shattering revelation? My last employer's policy was user's were responsible for backing up their own device files. Translation - very few did.

    On the other hand if the data was "key data," whatever that was stored on the user's devices should have been only copies of that stored on secured sever databases.
