Tuesday 19 June 2018 | 13:10 CET | News
Swedish communications regulator PTS said that Tele2 Sweden has brought its risk analysis method to counter privacy breaches up to standard, and that PTS has therefore discontinued its monitoring. The watchdog had been looking at the ways in which the operator identified, assessed and documented such risks, for example, through monthly appraisals of Tele's work on the matter. PTS said that it plans to monitor other operators' risk analyses.
