Indiana University Laptop Theft Breach: The PHI of about 3,000 patients of IU Medical School (including about 200 social security numbers) have potentially been exposed due to the theft of a laptop from one of its physicians. The laptop was password protected, but the data was not encrypted. According to the school, they are using the incident as a learning opportunity, which is a good idea. They should also be reassessing their overall HIPAA compliance, and perhaps reconsidering when and how they use encryption.
