Although the laptop computer was password protected, there is a possibility that the information could be accessed by a computer specialist with enough time and resources.

The disappearance of the laptop, apparently stolen from the physician’s vehicle on Tuesday, August 16, 2011, was immediately reported to law enforcement.

The IU School of Medicine is providing detailed information to those who might be affected by this incident at medicine.iu.edu/research/media-alert-faqs/, including suggestions how affected individuals may protect themselves from the possible unauthorized use of their personal information.

The IU School of Medicine and the IU Department of Surgery deeply regret this incident and are taking steps and security measures to minimize the likelihood of future incidents.
