Sometimes the Regulators Screw Up, Too: The California Department of Public Health used the mail when they should've used a private courier, and lost some data. I wonder how much they're going to fine themselves.

This might be digressing from the story, but why should they have used a private courier? I see in the article that CDPH protocol requires its use...but how does that impart better security?
Things go missing from private couriers, such as UPS and FedEx, all the time. Radioactive rods, for example.

There are a plethora of incidents where tapes, CDs, DVDs, and other materials never arrived to their intended destinations when private couriers were used.

It seems like an odd protocol, especially if its designed to get one out of getting fined.
