I am pissed.
I have not been at all impressed with their doctors, but when I’ve been really sick it was the closest clinic.
To date, they have not decided to notify anyone affected directly. They just went public and the information was stolen in Sept, by Oct they knew.
They didn’t even bother to try to protect the information.
Their hotline sucks, any question I asked was met with ummmm ahhhhhh. I got no answers other than what was already in news reports. The news reports actually had more information.
I have to wait to hear if they will pay for any of the credit bureau services.

Not myself personally… but I did hear about it on the news, and I immediately felt sorry for those that it would affect / impact.
Sorry to hear that it includes you… someone I consider I know (vs just another nameless / faceless eff-up in the technology world)
Hope it works out better in the long run for you, than you’ve experienced so far.

@This Time Round: Thanks! At least in my case it wasn’t the doctor I saw regularly, so I’ve never paid for any service there. It was all acute stuff that’s regularly covered.
I’m just disgusted that they would have so many people’s information unencrypted on a laptop and then someone walked around with it. Who knows, maybe it wasn’t stolen and it’s sitting in some lost and found somewhere as they don’t even know where it went missing.

@AB Bride: this is just an Alberta thing right?

That sucks. I was not part of that but my old doctor’s office had 3 computers stolen that were unencrypted. They contained medical records and all if patient’s personal records, including address, social security number, and date of birth. They have provided me with 1 year paid identity theft monitoring. My social security number will never change so now I feel stuck paying for this service forever.

@MsGinkgo: I think so, or anyone who went to a clinic in Alberta. They have a clinic(s) in London too, but I haven’t heard anything about that data being affected.
