    That's just it, you don't know who you're dealing with and there's little you can do to find out. Even if you could find out I'm not sure what good it would do you.

    “The more I thought about it, the more troubled I was,” Koester told the Minnesota Star Tribune. “What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? It’s scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?”

    You know you're dealing with the FedGov. That's scary enough.

    They're suppose to give UNBIASED info and not be associated with any particular insurance agents/companies.

    It was a major breech no matter how you frame it.

    Spot on. The implementation of this atrocious program will set a new record for government incompetence, and some folks are likely to be stuck with a lifetime of stolen identity.

    So you don't think that can happen at a corporate level? I do the ETL work in the insurance industry and to think that a mistake like this don't happen at the corporate level is straight foolish.

It's why I will never participate in any social media platform or site and why anyone who values their personal private integrity would never so freely and willingly pass it around.

    The days of everyone's personal information being secure because it was held on paper in locked filing cabinets deep in the bureaucracy of either government or business are long gone.
    Remember when facebook accidentally leaked out personal information of 6 million individuals?
