NDP urge investigation of privacy breaches at Canada Revenue Agency

Jordan Press reports:

The Opposition New Democrats want an investigation of new privacy concerns at the Canada Revenue Agency after the agency was unable to tell the NDP just how many privacy breaches it had sustained in the last 10 years.

The agency was asked by the NDP for information on how many data, information and privacy breaches had been recorded in each year between 2002 and 2012. Some other departments were able to provide data on privacy breaches, with the results showing more than 3,000 recorded breaches with almost 87 per cent of those breaches not reported to the privacy commissioner.
