The Organization was acting as legal counsel in disciplinary hearings before a Professional College (College). On October 9, 2019, a lawyer with the Organization printed several hundred pages of records containing personal health information related to the disciplinary hearings. Due to a printing problem, a number of these documents were discarded in the Organization?s recycle bin, instead of the secure shredding box. On October 10, 2019, the Organization was advised by the College that an individual had found documents discarded by the Organization in the alley behind the Organization?s building. The Organization investigated the garbage bins behind the building and did not find any additional documents. The Organization was not provided with details as to how someone came to be in possession of its documents.
