23 Sep Privacy Commissioner Says Phoenix Federal Pay Exposed Data
Earlier this week, Canadian privacy commissioner Daniel Thierren said that the administrative negligence behind the Phoenix Federal Pay system led to the exposure of sensitive information of public servants.
The system has been found to have incurred around 11 breaches, leaking information including names and salary information. Other problems which have been discovered could also suspend the a number of public servants from receiving their cheques for weeks.
Media outfits have reported that the Phoenix system has already cost Canadians around $185 million. It has also earned the ire of NDP MP Nathan Cullen, who has called it the worst kind of basic government he has seen.
