Stolen Computer Exposes New Jersey Patients' Data
The computer was taken from an unsecured filing room at Inspira Medical Center Vineland.
The computer, which was worth $2,800, was stolen from an unsecured filing room in the hospital's radiology department.
While the PC was password-protected, it's not yet clear whether or not it was encrypted.
It contained two 250 GB hard drives and a backup hard drive, and held some patient information, though the hospital is still working to determine exactly what data was on the drives.
Inspira spokesman Greg Potter told NJ.com that the hospital will "take proper measures" once it determines what information was exposed.
