Two Entities Report Breaches
DATA LOSS—U.S.May 17, 2010
The Los Angeles Firemen's Credit Union has notified some of its members that their personal information, including account and Social Security numbers, may have been compromised, Credit Union Times reports. The credit union's CEO said that "an extremely small percentage" of its 28,000 members' information was exposed when the credit union changed locations and that it is reviewing its "operational policies and procedures to ensure this type of situation never happens again." Meanwhile, New Mexico's Human Services Department is informing about 9,600 members of its Medicaid health plans that their personal information may have been compromised after a subcontractor's laptop was stolen.
