Utah Governor Pledges Breach Alleviation
DATA LOSS—U.S.April 11, 2012
After the personal information of nearly 800,000 Utah residents, including the Social Security numbers of approximately 225,000, was compromised in a security breach last month Utah Gov. Gary Herbert has vowed to commit everything in his power to help citizens regain trust in government, The Salt Lake Tribune reports. In a statement, Herbert said, "The Department of Technology Services is doing everything they can to restore security. Now we must do everything we can to restore trust." Meanwhile, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals has notified as many as 600 patients of a reported theft of radiology records, and a Seton Healthcare Family affiliate mistakenly mailed approximately 555 health plan member cards to incorrect recipients.
