Governor: Data Must be Protected

June 21st, 2013 by flanews

Governor Rick Scott returned to the state Capitol late this afternoon after a week in Paris at a trade show. While the Governor was gone, news leaked that as many as three thousand names of people in the prescription drug monitoring program were improperly disclosed. Scott originally opposed the creation of the database, but now says it is saving lives.

“As we all know what’s going on nationally we are all concerned about our privacy. This is just another example, we got to be very cautious. Make sure that when there’s any public personal information out there that we keep it as confidential as we can,” said Governor Rick Scott.

The Department of Health is responsibility for maintaining the security of the data. They have so far refused public comment.
