Disks containing personal information belonging to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services may have accidentally been taken to a local landfill, rather than properly destroyed. The Department has alerted the state Bureau of Investigation, as well as the Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General’s office.
“Our staff is revisiting our policies and procedures to ensure protection of all records,” said Jan Withers, division director. “Since 2008 all of our documents were encrypted to ensure their security, and all information will be stored in electronic secure files effective Sept. 30, 2011.”
