Health PEI notifying public of privacy breach affecting 4,000 patients and 1,200 staff
In early April, an employee’s laptop was stolen, containing information about more than 4,000 patients and more than 1,200 Health PEI employees.
The laptop theft was reported to police the following day. The laptop was password protected and information technology staff took steps to secure the information as soon as possible, including resetting the password. The likelihood of anyone actually being able to access the information is believed to be low.
