Sweden’s government is being quietly rocked by a major scandal. So far the market has paid it little regard, but, as Citi warns, it may soon escalate..
Sweden appears to have accidentally leaked the details of almost all of its citizens. And now it’s getting worse as the leak happened in 2015, but only emerged last week. As The Indepedent reports,
The leak allowed unvetted IT workers in other countries to see the details of people registered in Swedish government and police databases.
It happened after the government looked to outsource data held by the Transport Agency, but did so in a way that allowed that information to be available to almost anyone, critics have claimed.
The opposition is seeking to boot out the ministers of infrastructure, defence and the interior – Anna Johansson, Peter Hultqvist and Anders Ygeman, respectively – for their role in outsourcing IT-services for the Swedish Transport Agency in 2015.
