The .gov Loves To Collect Data, Not Protect It

But when one agency has 3 breaches in 1 year, there is something wrong. Minnesota DHS Reports Health Data Breach from 2018 Email Hack.

The latest breach bore similarities to those incidents. On Tuesday, DHS officials notified lawmakers of a third data breach caused by a cyberattack on an employee’s email account on or around March 26, 2018.

This one apparently went undetected for some time, as the other 2 were in June and July of last year.

So you’ve proven unable to protect citizens data. Why should you be allowed access to any data? The breach is over a year old. The investigation ended in February of this year, and they only just started notifying people (and legislators) about it.
