Personal details of staff released in Social Protection IT breach

Mick Clifford reports:

Personal files of staff and former staff members at the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection were leaked in a data breach of one of the department’s IT systems.

A malfunction in the system led to confidential information being shared with a wide number of staff in the department, the Irish Examiner has learned.

Read more on Irish Examiner.  I got all the way down to the bottom of the story and saw, “The information stored in the system would include medical files for personnel in the department.”  Yikes.
