Which privacy regulation is violated in California when an unauthorized individual accesses another individual’s medical records? 

In California, unauthorized access to someone's medical records without justification is a violation of multiple laws and regulations. One of the primary regulations is the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA). This act protects the privacy of individuals by prohibiting unauthorized access, use, and disclosure of medical information. 

Furthermore, on a federal level, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) also sets standards for the protection of sensitive patient health information. Entities covered by HIPAA are required to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all electronic protected health information (ePHI) they create, receive, maintain, or transmit.
