Obamacare Website ‘Marketplace’ Violates Federal Security Laws

It appears that the Obamacare websites are violating federal laws that require that the personal information of visitors remain safe from hackers and identity thieves, a new report says.

The 2002 law in question is called the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and it demands that federal websites must be secure and to assure that level of security the websites are supposed to undergo mandated testing procedures. But Obama has simply ignored all those tests, skipping them entirely with his Obamacare websites.

As Charles Johnson writes, federal websites are awarded an “authority to operate” certificate, or an ATO, after these tests are performed to assure security.

“But according to CMS’s 2014 budget request,” Johnson writes, “no such security assessment took place. The Federal Healthcare Marketplace website was rolled out without full end-to-end testing.”

To satisfy FISMA, federal agencies are required to: “develop, document, and implement an agency-wide program to provide information security for the information and information systems that support the operations and assets of the agency, including those provided or managed by another agency, contractor, or other source.”

But it appears that the Obamacare websites simply ignored all these laws and requirements. In other words, the President’s Obamacare marketplace websites are violating the law.

This also means that all your personal information is completely insecure. Anyone with moderate hacking skills should be able to steal your personal information and Obama has made no effort at all to stop them.

What do you think of this breach of the law?
