Encrypt data at rest

The Register reports this morning:

American health insurer Centene Corp says it has lost 950,000 sensitive customer records stored on six hard drives.

The drives hold customers’ name and address, date of birth, Social Security numbers, and health information.

Encrypted? Obviously not. Excuse? None.
