Private information of thousands who received Covid vaccine exposed in HSE blunder
Ailbhe Daly reports:
The private information of thousands of people who have received the Covid-19 vaccine have been exposed following a HSE blunder.
The IT system used by the HSE was compromised due to ‘human error’, meaning that confidential data was accessible despite earlier warnings by data chiefs.
Crucial details that can often be used to certify access to financial, health and highly personal files online were left exposed, including PPS numbers, addresses, names and contact details.
