Folders containing information about students from the University's Division of Continuing Education were lost. The folders were from the previous year and included names, Social Security numbers, Harvard ID numbers, dates of birth, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers. Some of the folders contained additional information about the students and their dependents, spouses or parents. The information did not include credit card numbers. The University speculates that the folders were placed in a file cabinet that was later recycled.

An employee error caused sensitive patient documents to be sent to a recycling facility. Some of the documents, which should have been shredded instead of recycled, were found on December 29 after being blown out of a recycling truck.  The documents included patient names and dates of birth.  The papers that fell off the truck were shredded by Adventist and any documents that remained at the facility were destroyed there.  The employee responsible for the mistake was not fired.
