Ca: Clients notified of privacy breach at Child and Family Services

Brian Higgins reports about an incident on Prince Edward Island:

Some clients of Child and Family Services on P.E.I. have been notified by registered letter of a security breach involving their personal information.

The letter, dated Aug. 6, was sent by the Department of Social Housing and Development to clients whose electronic files were affected. The province said “fewer than 10” clients were affected, but did not provide an exact number.

The files included “client notes, current life circumstances and current or past child-protection issues,” according to the letter.

The incident seems to be an insider snooping case.
