ATLANTA (AP) - Humana health care company is warning Atlanta members about a possible security breach after a USB drive and laptop were taken from an employee’s car.

WXIA-TV reports that the USB drive contained names, some medical records information and some Social Security numbers for about 3,000 members in the Atlanta area (http://bit.ly/1kbGlsb). Humana has begun to contact members who could have been affected and plans to provide free credit-monitoring services.
