    As I get ready to submit my parent's tax information to various schools to be considered for institutional aid, I started to get a little apprehensive about the type and amount of information and how secure it would be at the schools. Given the fact that the schools want the tax returns and 1099s, this information is highly sensitive.

    For example, Johns Hopkins lost a ton of employee and patient data a few weeks ago...

    Has anyone come across any personal data security policies at medical schools that outline how information will be stored and transmitted?

    I guess I did. I completely forgot... WOW! I guess I thought about it again because I finally got my parent's info. Feel free to ignore/close this thread.

    I'm sure I've come close to doing the very same thing a few times...
