The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Prince Edward Island found a dental office employee had sent the sensitive information of 1,041 patients to a family member, CBC News reports. An investigation found the data had not been sent with malicious intent but rather to prove that the staff member was actually at work. The employee was fired for their actions, and all the emails sent by the staff member had been "securely destroyed." All affected individuals were notified of the incident, and seven patients who had their financial information disclosed were offered credit-monitoring services.
