The William Jennings Bryan Dorn VA medical Center in Columbia, S.C., faces a federal lawsuit following a breach that impacted more than 7,400 veterans, The State reports. On Feb. 11, a laptop containing personal information--including names, birth dates and partial Social Security numbers--was stolen from the facility.
The suit, which claims that VA officials failed to implement "basic computer safeguards," was filed by two veterans--Richard Beck and Lakreshia Jeffrey--according to The State.
"These vets, who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, deserve better," said attorney Michael Kelly, who is representing the plaintiffs. Article
