2014/10/01

Los Angeles Times - (California) Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles notified 33,136 patients September 11 that their personal and health information may have been accessed after a password-protected, unencrypted laptop was stolen from an employee's home during a June burglary. The hospital previously reported the theft to 500 patients in August, but forensic analysis determined the laptop contained information for thousands of additional patients, including about 1,500 Social Security numbers.
