ST. PAUL — The board of Minnesota’s health insurance exchange is meeting with plans to discuss a recent security breach.
MNsure’s board of directors meets this 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 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.
