Dentist Sued for Privacy Breaches

State attorney generals continue to go after HIPAA violators. The Indiana State Attorney General's Office has reached a settlement with a dentist they sued for mishandling records of 5,600 patients. The records included names, medical records, phone numbers, birth dates, Social Security numbers, insurance cards, insurance information and state ID numbers

Indiana's Attorney General, Greg Zoller, is seeking to toughen laws related to data breaches. He said “The alarming rise in data breaches we’re experiencing on a global scale is putting countless Hoosiers at risk of identity theft, which can have absolutely devastating consequences."

"The Attorney General’s Office sued Beck for failing to protect personal information."
