Alaska Email Disaster: Hope Community Resources, an Alaska network of social workers and disability volunteers, sent an email to stakeholders (state workers and others involved in providing services to the disabled) seeking input as part of a re-accreditation process.  Unfortunately, they included an attachment that had personal information about Hope's 3700 clients.  Doesn't look like social security information, but the mere identity of the patients and their conection to Hope is definitely sensitive information (not to mention PHI).
