Norwegian DPA imposes administrative fine to Østfold HF Hospital

From EDPB on November 25:
The Norwegian Data Protection Authority has decided on an administrative fee of NOK 750,000 to Østfold HF Hospital. The background is that in the period 2013-2019, the hospital stored report extracts from patient records outside the safe zone. The case started with a notice of personal data breach from the hospital.

The folders where the extracts were stored were not access controlled, and the activity in the folders was not logged.
