Naval Hospital Pensacola will be notifying thousands of beneficiaries who
use its pharmacy services, following the disappearance of a laptop
computer August 18 which contains personally identifiable information.

The computer's database contains a registry of 38,000 pharmacy service
customers' names, Social Security numbers and dates of birth on all
patients that used the pharmacy in the last year. It does not contain any
personal health information.

"While there is no evidence to suggest personal data has been compromised,
it is the Department of the Navy's policy to apprise individuals whose
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) may be at risk," says Captain
Maryalice Morro, commanding officer.
