The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has been breached for the second time in six months, Info Security reports. The personal information of 9,000 employees was "improperly copied to a private hard drive and removed from state offices," according to the CDPH. The information includes names, addresses, Social Security numbers, birth dates, next-of-kin names and addresses and workers' compensation documents, the report states. The agency is offering credit monitoring services to those affected and is reviewing its security procedures. The CDPH reported a separate breach in December 2010, which affected up to 2,550 individuals.
