Security Breach at Johns Hopkins: I forgot to mention the news the other day of a big data security breach at Johns Hopkins University and Hospital. Computer data backup tapes that were sent to a vendor for further backup (microfilming) never got returned, and nobody knows where they are. They contain employee and patient information. Here's a story on it. Here's their own press release.

And here's a story from Modern Healthcare's Daily Dose (you need to subscribe, but you should, it's free and a good newsy afternoon email every day), with Hopkins' promising to make everything right.
