Aetna revealed that on April 27 that an employee laptop containing personally identifiable data from 38,000 members was stolen from the employee’s car while it was parked in a public car park.

The 38,000 members are employees of two companies that have a contract with Aetna. Aetna President and CEO Ronald A. Williams said that Aetna was conducting an audit to ensure that all persons whose data is affected are notified of the breach. Williams also indicated that the data on the laptop was password protected and they have received no indications that any unauthorized use of the data has taken place.

Aetna is offering to pay for free credit monitoring services for affected persons and has notified law enforcement authorities about the breach.
