The Latest Data Breach Is in Sweden

Recently, we witnessed one of the worst government cybersecurity snafus in history. Read on to see what can be learned from this incident.

We’ve seen some pretty incredible data breaches in the past couple years, but the latest data breach in Sweden actually jeopardized the vast majority of its citizens. A country-wide data security breach online is new. Up to this point, we’d only seen data breaches for specific political parties or the data of individual politicians. Sweden managed to reveal state secrets, hidden police forces, sensitive military information, and private citizens’ faces, addresses, and vehicle registration all at the same time. It’s impressive in the worst way possible. To make matters worse, poor handling has made the situation even harder to contain.
