WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI) has introduced the Safe and Secure Federal Websites Act, to protect the privacy and security of Americans who access federal websites.
The bill is an urgent response to the launch of healthcare.gov, which has been proven to have no effective security features to protect the sensitive personal information of its users.
Congressman Kerry Bentivolio will soon introduce the Safe and Secure Federal Website Act.

This ensures that federal agencies implement minimal security standards to protect individual’s personal information and privacy.
Under this legislation, federal websites that collect personal information, such as social security numbers, will not be able to launch until they meet a minimal security standard.
The partial shut-down is now entering its third week.
