Health P.E.I. alerts public of privacy breach after laptop stolen

Shane Ross reports:

More than 4,000 patients and 1,200 Health P.E.I. employees are being notified of a privacy breach after an employee’s laptop was stolen in April.

In a news release issued Wednesday, Health P.E.I. said the stolen laptop was password protected and information technology staff took steps to secure the information as soon as possible, including resetting the password. The likelihood of anyone actually being able to access the information is believed to be low, the release said.
