CNN's Candy Crowley: On the subject of health care..., you expressed again your real fear about the security of Obamacare as we call it, especially with the hub with seven sort of federal entities gathering information in one place.
We're now told that they should have the computer system and the software fixed by the end of November. Can they fix the security problems by the end of November?
Rep. Mike Rogers: Boy, I don't - this worries me a lot, Candy. The fact that they have different segments of people controlling pieces of information and they say, "well, we don't store information." But they have to store your application at some point. And that's a lot of your very personal information. And it was very clear to me in the hearing that they do not have an overarching solid cybersecurity plan to prevent the loss of private information.
I'm even more concerned today than I was even last week. I know that they've called in another private entity to try to help with the security of it. The problem is they may have to redesign the entire system. The way the system is designed, it is not secure. It is something called a "boundary". So every time one agency goes to another agency with a piece of information, that is called a "boundary". That's the most - that's the weakest, most vulnerable part of that conversation. And it was clear to me that they don't have those boundaries secure. And that's what I'm concerned about.
