CBP: municipalities jumping lightly with security for private data




Municipalities jumping lightly to the protection of private data. That says the Data Protection. Protection of personal data under the DPA is a human and municipal authorities do not yet good abilities.

Municipalities receive from January 1, 2015 more private data under their care, as among other tasks in the field of Youth come to lie. Municipalities The management of data brings with it an obligation, says Vice President Wilbert Tomesen of CBP against the newspaper. “Financial data, family composition, will soon be youth and social support. Sensitive information that citizens are required to donate. Municipalities are required to do so carefully to their citizens to deal with.”

The municipalities are simply not ready for that task, claiming Tomesen. Some municipalities phasing Windows XP until next year, while support on April 8 stops. During that period, all the PCs remain vulnerable to newly found vulnerabilities. Presumably waiting attackers until after 8 April at many vulnerabilities apply in cyber attacks, so the attacks remain effective because Microsoft no longer leak tight.

Tomesen finds that local data protection should take seriously. “Data protection is a human right. You can hardly insist that municipalities are ready to protect the large amount of sensitive data that they will soon get well and secure.” It is not the first time that CBP points out the dangers of the transfer of responsibilities to municipalities without adequate safeguards for data protection.
