Rep. Billy Long Says Better Security is Needed for Online Federal Database

Posted on July 18, 2016 18:31 pm CDT


Congressman Billy Long points out a recent report showing that the Federal Department of Health and Human Services was breached five times, putting information at risk. He says there needs to be changes in how the department prioritizes online security or it could happen again.

"Because HHS was hacked with very unsophisticated methods and so we're working on a bill of that nature too," Long says.

It's the HHS Data Protection Act of 2016, which would restructure the department in an attempt to make protecting personal data a top priority.
