[Dataloss] CA: Missing Laptop Contained Sutter Workers Data

Hundreds of current and former employees with Sutter Health will soon get
a letter telling them their personal data has been compromised.

Officials for the company's Sacramento Sierra region recently recieved a
big surprise when they were contacted by a computer repair shop.

"The repair people did the right thing and told us they had our laptop,"
said Sutter Communication Coordinator Kami Lloyd. The laptop contained
names and social security numbers of 6,000 Sutter Health workers.

A letter sent to workers said Sutter believed an employee had possession
of a company laptop since 2007 but late last month it showed up at a
computer repair business. When technicians realized where the computer
came from, they returned the hard drive to Sutter.
