Previously unreported breaches in the healthcare sector

Earlier today, I posted some breaches that had been reported to the NYS Consumer Protection Board during the period September 1 – December 31, 2009, and for the beginning of this year.

The state only posted summaries of the breaches, so I do not have details, but thought that the breaches should be noted.

  • Mount Sinai School of Medicine – Missing USB drive – 319
