The Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association reported [pdf] to the New Hampshire Department of Justice that a laptop was stolen from a staff member’s vehicle on April 16. The laptop contained birth date and social security numbers for 15 clients.
CRVNA believes that the risk of ID theft is low because of the three levels of security protection used, which they described in their notification as:
a) A hard drive lock which requires a password to be entered prior to the boot up of the laptop.
b) A password is then required to access the laptop Microsoft applications and the startup menu.
c) And finally a third password is required to access the Horizon Home Care software which is the application that stored the personal information. In addition, the Horizon Home Care database folder has an encrypted system administrator password.
