An enclosed file cabinet with student registration cards was left unattended for a short period of time. The cabinet was moved to a temporary storage facility while the Student Records Management Office prepared to move to a new location in the same building. The cabinet should not have been left unattended; it contained Social Security numbers for students who registered for the fall quarter of 2010 at any COTC campus.  The incident occurred on March 10 and notifications were sent to students on April 14.

Twenty boxes of documents with sensitive medical and financial information were lost during transportation sometime around Saturday, April 30.  The information was mostly from the office of a family lawyer, but other sensitive documents may have been lost on Highway 101 during the incident.  The boxes were being transported to a new Baker storage facility. Baker did not inform the lawyer that the documents had been lost and the incident was discovered when the lawyer's son saw a news report about the incident.  The documents appear to be from the 1980's and early 1990's.
