Health insurance company Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey has announced that two laptops were stolen from its offices. Although the laptops were locked to the workstations in the office an unknown perpetrator managed to seize them. This breach could result in loss of personal data of 839,711 customers. It is a secnd large-scale loss of personal data of patients in short time after the recent hack of UW Medicine. The case points to importance of encrypting sensitive data even in case they are stored on machines locked in the office.
