After security flaw found, Missouri hires data breach group
Two weeks after a newspaper discovered a security flaw on a state website, Gov. Mike Parson's administration has hired a company that performs data breach and credit monitoring services.
The state signed a contract last week with Identity Theft Guard Solutions, also known as ID Experts, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The move comes after a Post-Dispatch reporter found a flaw that potentially exposed the Social Security numbers of an estimated 100,000 Missouri teachers.
