Dr. Kathryn Duevel, a board member, wanted to know how MNsure could reassure people who are most in need of getting coverage.

“We need to get people some level of assurance that they can still come to MNsure and apply,” she said. “What are we going to do to educate them?”

Chris Buse, assistant commissioner and chief information security officer of MN.IT, told the board there had been an “all hands on deck” staffing philosophy for the past year.

His department has worked closely with federal agencies, including the IRS, to make sure the system meets requirements for safeguarding private data.

“There are no guarantees,” he said. “But you try to put in the best preventive, corrective controls to make the system as secure as possible.”
