PTS probes Telia for possible data security shortcomings

Thursday 9 June 2016 | 11:38 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said it is beginning an investigation into Telia on the grounds of possible shortcomings in the way the operator deals with integrity incidents. PTS said telecommunications operators handle large quantities of information about the people using their services. If such information is misused or vanishes, operators are meant to report this to PTS, and the individuals affected should be informed so that they can, for instance, change their password or phone number.
