Reporting Inappropriate Disclosure or Theft of Social Security Numbers
The UT Health Science Center at San Antonio requires all employees to report promptly inappropriate disclosure or theft of social security numbers (SSN) to their supervisor, who shall report the disclosure to the Compliance Officer/Privacy Officer.
Reporting by the employee may be anonymous, in accordance with the institution's compliance program, if the employee chooses. Retaliation against an employee who in good faith reports an inappropriate disclosure of SSN is prohibited. If the supervisor and Compliance Officer determine that the SSN was inappropriately disclosed or stolen, and individuals have been put at risk of identity theft or other harm as a result of the disclosure, the UT Health Science Center shall take all reasonable steps to promptly notify the individuals affected.
