Well, here’s a laptop theft that will probably cost more than $50,000….. KOCO reports that a laptop stolen from an employee’s vehicle on April 3 contained personal information of up to 1 million people. According to the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, the computer had names, Social Security numbers and birthdates of people who receive state assistance. NewsOK has a bit more on the incident.
Update 1: OKDHS has a notice on its web site about the incident that says “The personal information included names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and home addresses of clients who receive Medicaid; Child Care assistance; Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF); Aid to the Aged, Blind and Disabled; and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP or Food Stamps). The data did not contain driver’s license numbers, credit card or banking information. The potential breach did not affect Child Welfare services.”
