Now Docs Association Stolen Hard Drives Exposes Personal Data Of 39,000
It won't be long before every one's personal financial data and health care information is in the hands of miscreants. An employee of the Indiana State Medical Association reported the theft of two computer hard drives while they were being transported to an off-site storage site according to WRTV. The hard drives contained identifying information for 39,000 people, including names, addresses, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, email addresses and personal medical histories. The ISMA's health insurance plan is Anthem, which had already suffered the exposure of confidential information on tens of millions of its insured after its database was breached by hackers. Presumably, the affected persons are physician members and employees of physician groups.
