Incident: Laptop stolen with encrypted patient info

The MD Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas is reporting that a laptop containing personal insurance claims of thousands of patients was stolen. The good news? It was all encrypted. More good news? The hospital thought it was still important that they notify individuals whose data was on the computer. See: Stolen laptop puts M.D. Anderson patients' info at risk.
