Oops. MD Anderson lost an unencrypted thumb drive containing data on 2200 patients. A trainee lost it on the employee bus. It's the 3rd 2nd loss this year, the other 2 being laptops a laptop stolen from a physician's house and an accountant/auditor's house.

UPDATE: as noted above, the auditor's laptop theft did occur, but way, way back in 2006, not in 2012. Many thanks to "Dissent" from PHI Privacy.net.
