North Carolina DHHS Clients’ Personal Information Compromised: The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has announced that the Division of Services for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing (“DSDHH”) may have inadvertently thrown out computer disks containing the personal information of North Carolinians who had applied for services from DSDHH’s Equipment Distribution Service between January 2005 through December 2008. DSDHH Director Jan Withers announced that all information maintained by the agency has been encrypted since 2008.
