Submission + - IBM "loses drives," exposes 1.9m HeathNet insurers (tekgroup.com)

dAzED1 writes: "Along with 1,900,000 other people, I received a letter from Health Net a few days ago letting me know that "information includ[ing] details such as [my] name, address, health information, Social Security number, and [my] financial information" was on the drives. This, just one year after another major HIPAA violation from Health Net just one year ago. Why such data was stored in an unencrypted manner, such that merely having the drives exposes the data, will have to be determined. Health Net has already offered free signups to the Debix Identity Protection Network."
