Data breaches continue to affect private and public organizations across all sectors. Among this week's incidents, the biggest news may be that the state of Washington’s court system may have been hacked, potentially affecting millions of residents. Several healthcare organizations announced breaches this week, including a North Carolina-based clinic. The incident may have compromised the health records of more than 17,000 patients. A Pennsylvania-based senior-housing organization was also breached, exposing more than 7,300 records. More on these and additional data incidents can be found in this roundup for The Privacy Advisor.
