Data Inspection Board: Counties must do more to protect personal information

The Swedish Data Inspection Board has criticized the county administrative boards in Sweden for the manner in which they handle personal information, reports Swedish Radio News.

The Board says one common problem is that the counties lack IT mechanisms to ensure that employees access only personal information that is needed to carry out the task at hand.

The Board also criticizes the counties for lacking routines to make sure that sensitive personal information is not published on their websites.
