Thursday 14 June 2018 | 13:44 CET | News
Swedish telecoms regulator PTS said the five largest operators do have suitable procedures in place to identify and internally report privacy breaches, but says they ought to be more proactive, as customers are tending to notice them before the operators do. The watchdog has been scrutinising Com Hem, Telia, Telenor, Tele2 and 3 Sweden since 2017, looking at how they spot such events and report them in-house.
