St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The MnSure and State Security officials told a legislative committee Tuesday a security breach was not an IT system problem, but simply a policy violation by one employee.

MNSure's security is being checked by an independent company.

According to the state, they found only minor to moderate security issues that are being corrected.

The breach revealed personal information about more than 1,500 insurance brokers.

MNSure says the program 'will' go live as planned one week from Tuesday.

"We view security very strongly and, as well as the functionality that we'll be able to provide. So, we are assessing that on a day-to-day basis to make sure that we are ready to go on October 1st," said April Todd-Mamlov, the executive director for MNSure.
