Access Health CT (Conn. Obamacare exchange) Data Breach:
Jeff [10:58 AM]
This, on the other hand, is a reportable breach
: a backpack was found abandoned on a Hartford street. It contained paperwork from the Connecticut Obamacare insurance exchange relating to 400 exchange customers, including names, social security numbers, birthdates, and other printed and handwritten information. Apparently it was a call center employee's backpack. They aren't supposed to take that information outside of the premises of the call center.
It will be interesting to see if there is a fine levied here.
