The chancellor at the University of California-San Francisco has formed a task force to review and improve security practices following two recent security breaches involving patient medical information. The group will review security practices nationally and develop a "rapid-response" plan to ensure that patients, physicians and others are given timely notice about breaches. In one breach, information about 6,300 patients was exposed on the Internet for several months.
