Swedish regulator probes Telia for delays in reporting privacy breaches

Thursday 9 July 2020 | 13:47 CET | News
Swedish regulator PTS said it is scrutinising Telia Company's reporting routines, as the operator has been late in informing the watchdog of security breaches. Operators are obliged to report any incidents to PTS within 24 hours and provide a full report on the matter within three days after that. In late autumn 2019, the regulator realised that Telia was not always submitting its full reports in time, despite reminders.
