Health Net sued by Connecticut AG over lost data

Hartford Courant, January 14, 2010
Health Net is being sued by Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal for allegedly failing to secure patients' medical records and not promptly notifying consumers of a massive security breach. The health insurer had a portable, external hard drive go missing in May, though it's not clear if it was lost or stolen. The drive contained medical claims and financial information of up to 1.5 million customers. Blumenthal's office said the lost records are a violation of HIPAA.
