    The telecommunications company Telia is forced to pay a penalty fee of SEK 15 million after failing to conduct security checks on employees, writes the Post and Telecommunications Authority (PTS) in a press release.

    There it is written that Telia failed to apply for the correct register checks for signal protection personnel.

    PTS describes the incident as serious as a number of unauthorized persons have been allowed to work with safety-sensitive operations.

    “The vulnerability that arose as a result of the breach may have been exploited by an antagonist through a so-called insider attack with the aim of affecting security-sensitive operations in, among other things, the area of ​​electronic communications. Such an impact would, according to PTS, cause damage to Sweden’s security,” the authority writes in its decision.

    Telia tells TT that they plan to appeal the decision on fines.
