Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS has announced two new monitoring procedures, one to scrutise operators’ ability to spot and report integrity incidents, and a second to examine their ability to handle repeat incidents.
The watchdog has just completed its 2016 integrity incident report and has registered approximately 70 cases, which it said was nearly treble the amount in 2015. It attributed the rise to operators’ better ability to identify and report events, but it believes that more such incidents occur without being reported.
It said providers should improve their reporting systems, for example, when customer data is leaked. Many breaches occur through subcontractors or vendors.
