Portland, Ore. - 3/5/08 - Oregon practitioners are subject new requirements designed to protect consumers from identification theft.

The law applies to the state's businesses, organizations and government agencies with 50 or more employees. It requires practice owners, among others, to develop, implement and maintain reasonable safeguards to ensure the security, confidentiality and integrity of sensitive personal information.

That means properly storing and disposing of personal data, says Glenn Kolb, Oregon Veterinary Medical Association executive director. He advises practitioners to shred sensitive documents, lock files and password protect computer workstations.
