Prof. McGeveran on National Public Radio Discussing Aetna HIV Breach

Professor William McGeveran spoke on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition program about the $17 million settlement of a privacy lawsuit against Aetna. The company sent letters to HIV-positive members in envelopes with overly large transparent address windows that exposed their HIV status. McGeveran pointed out that, even with increased attention to cybersecurity, old-fashioned “analog” privacy mistakes remain a serious problem.
