State-run health insurance exchange failed to prevent breaches of CT residents’ data, audit finds

The health exchange that facilitates the purchase of Obamacare plans for Connecticut residents should do more to safeguard its clients’ personal data, a recent state audit found, and also failed to report dozens of security lapses to state authorities.

Personal information was lost in 44 breaches at Access Health CT between July 2017 and March 2021, including a phishing scam that affected 1,100 people, according to the early March report from the Auditors of Public Accounts. But these lapses were not reported to the auditor or the state Comptroller’s Office, which is required by law, according to the audit.
