Mark Lanterman, of Computer Forensic Services, will testify before the MNsure Legislative Oversight Committee later this week.

Lanterman is the computer forensic analyst we partnered with to identify and help fix a vulnerability on the MNsure website that put user data at risk.

MNsure and the state initially denied a problem existed.

It took six weeks before the state reached out and asked Lanterman for help in addressing the issue.

Lanterman will discuss the vulnerability and the state's delayed response when he testifies before lawmakers on the committee.

The meeting is at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the Capitol.
