Quest Diagnostics laptop stolen

Quest Diagnostics has notified the Maryland Attorney General’s office that an employee’s password-protected laptop containing names, addresses, and Social Security numbers was stolen on May 1. The notification letter did not indicate the total number of individuals with data on the laptop, whether the data belonged to patients or employees, or whether the laptop was stolen from a vehicle, home, or other location. From the wording of the letter, however, it would appear to be patient data.

Quest is offering those affected free credit monitoring for one year.
