Sixteen officials faced disciplinary proceedings for Police and Border Guard Board’s (PPA) KAIRI information system. Four lost to their jobs for unauthorized access. For example, one police officer from J├Áhvi made 170 queries on 70 individuals, 52 vehicles and 11 phone numbers, none related to his official duties. “PPA takes data handling very seriously and exercises ever stronger control over the use of its information systems,” said Anne Abel from PPA’s internal audit office.

Good work by PPA’s internal audit office. What about other institutions which hold state information systems?

    This is not important for other institutions, because personal data access made by non law enforcement institutions is not hidden in audit log provided in eesti.ee to a resident.
