MNsure 'workstation-by-workstation' security review after breach

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

MNsure executive director April Todd-Malmov said Friday an employee of the state's health insurance exchange no longer works for the agency after accidentally releasing the private information of 1,600 insurance agents.

MNsure revealed last week that the employee inadvertently emailed a list to an Apple Valley insurance broker's office that contained Social Security numbers, addresses and other private information.

Todd-Malmlov said the worker was violating a MNsure internal policy by storing unencrypted personal information on a computer's desktop.

MNsure said it's conducting a "workstation by workstation" review of data privacy measures in response to the data release.
