The team of PSII (hereinafter “PSII“) participated in the challenge of the Garage48 Baltic Open & Big Data 2017 where potential privacy violations had to be detected in the public document registries of the Estonian public authorities (see: https://github.com/okestonia/opendata-issue-tracker/issues/74).
As a result of completing the challenge, PSII detected several potential data privacy breaches, including not only unlawful processing of personal data (incl. e.g. personal data of children), but also unlawful processing of sensitive personal data (e.g. data about disabilities).
Due to the sensitivity of the data detected, PSII has taken security measures and closed down the application. The relevant authorities have been informed and the team will cooperate with them to help to remove the sensitive personal data from the Internet.
