I’m not even sure where we go from here. If your business or government agency is involved in these health insurance marketplaces, don’t be afraid to ask the tough security questions and even test the environments on your own. It’s this type of grass-roots effort that could introduce some sanity into Obamacare. In the administration’s defense, I’m sure this is an unfortunate oversight that will be quickly remediated. But will it be quick enough to avert a disastrous information breach or worse?
