HIPAA: Another big fine after a small breach

Gov Info Security, September 18, 2012

The Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights has entered a settlement with Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary that includes a $1.5 million penalty. The resolution agreement cites a number of HIPAA violations discovered during an OCR investigation into the 2010 theft of an unencrypted laptop.
