Government urged to protect sensitive data Listen
An information technology expert, Anthony Lai, says the government needs to do a better job in protecting sensitive data. This comes after the Census and Statistics Department revealed that it lost the personal data of 46 people, when a tablet used during last year's population by-census went missing at a fast-food restaurant. The data on another tablet that went missing earlier was remotely deleted. Officials believe the risk of data leakage is extremely low in the latest case, because the information was encrypted and the tablet locked by dual-password authentication. Ben Tse asked Mr Lai - the founder of Valkyrie-X Security Research - whether he agreed with the officials that the risk of data leakage is extremely low.
