MNsure Board Meets, Will Discuss Security Breach

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The board of Minnesota’s health insurance exchange is meeting with plans to discuss a recent security breach.

MNsure’s board of directors meets Friday afternoon. The gathering comes a week after a MNsure employee accidentally sent out personal information, including Social Security numbers, of about 2,400 insurance agents.

MNsure officials say the mistake that was quickly rectified. The agency’s executive director, April Todd-Malmlov, is scheduled to brief board members about how it happened and what was done to remedy it. The information was accidentally included in an email to an insurance agent in Burnsville.

The state’s top technology official is also on the meeting’s agenda to deliver a briefing on information security issues. MNsure critics have raised concerns that the agency would not do enough to protect personal information of enrollees.
