Nkom cuts security breach fine on Broadnet to NOK 11 million

Wednesday 27 June 2018 | 12:12 CET | News
Norwegian telecoms regulator Nkom said it has reduced the penalty that it imposed on Broadnet for security breaches from NOK 14 million to NOK 11 million. The fine was imposed for serious deviations discovered during its 2017 scrutiny of the so-called Nodnett affair. The watchdog said it reduced the fine because the operator had closed gaps in its monitoring and overhauled its security proceedings in ways that exceeded the obligations set by Nkom.
