Governor Strickland has confirmed that a data storage device stolen from an intern contained information on nearly 54-thousand participants of the state's pharmacy benefits management program.

It also had the names and Social Security numbers of about
75-thousand dependents.

Strickland said today that findings of more compromised records
will come in the next several days. Another press conference has
been scheduled for tomorrow.

Strickland announced yesterday that the names and Social Security numbers of all 64-thousand state employees were contained on the device stolen from an intern's car last weekend.

Strickland again said he has no reason to believe the information has been compromised because of the equipment and technical expertise needed to access it.
