OPM Data Breach and More with Brad Carlson, AM 1280 The Patriot, July 22, 2018

The July 22, 2018 St. Paul Pioneer Press headline was, “Minnesota has your data. Just how safe is it?” The article mentions MN IT needs $10.6 million dollars to bring in the security tools to keep my personal data safe.  But since the Republican Legislature and Democrat Governor play chicken with the state budget every session, so far, the department has gotten $0 for security upgrades. And, since my personal data is the most important data in the whole world and MN IT keeps a copy of it, I want these clowns to stop playing Chicken and start doing their job. Or let’s elect somebody else.  Brad and I talked about this and the disastrous 2015 United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) data breach.

Here is a blog post.  And here is the podcast. Our conversation starts around the 33 minute mark.
