Judge Approves CBR Settlement
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.February 8, 2013
A federal judge has tentatively approved a settlement between CBR Systems and nearly 300,000 clients whose data was breached, Reuters reports. The incident occurred when a laptop storing data from the blood bank was stolen from an employee’s car. U.S. District Judge Michael Anello of the Southern District of California granted preliminary approval to an agreement that would require CBR to improve its data protection policies and offer those affected two years of credit monitoring services. The company recently settled with the FTC over the breach.
