Two Republican lawmakers Wednesday demanded that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) provide information on security measures used to secure the Federal Data Services Hub that was built to support Obamacare healthcare exchanges.
In a letter to HHS Inspector General Daniel Levinson, Congressmen Patrick Meehan (R-Pa) and Diane Black (R-Tenn.) requested information on the results of tests condusted to verify the security of the data hub. They also wanted HHS to identify the consultants used to help carry out the tests, and to disclose what measures are currently in place to protect against cyberattacks.
“It is imperative that Congress be provided with the information necessary to understand how the Data Hub was certified and what continuing controls have been put in place to protect Americans who are currently accessing the system,” the two lawmakers wrote.
