Why communicate securely?

Municipalities and citizens are increasingly communicating digitally and sharing a lot of information. This data is often sensitive data such as social security numbers and name and address data. However, such data, that says something about the health of a citizen, is often exchanged by e-mail. In short: you, the municipality and the public do not want this information to fall into the wrong hands.

Regulations for municipalities

As a municipality, you must take the following regulations into account:

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR was adopted on 14 April 2016, and became enforceable beginning 25 May 2018. This law obliges organizations within Europe to process and protect personal data correctly. In practice, this means that people whose data are stored, processed and shared now have more rights.

Most data breaches in municipalities

Wherever communication is not secure, the chance of a data breach is always present. And the figures from the Dutch Data Protection Authority also show that:

  • 11,906 data breaches were reported in 2019;
  • 63% of all data breaches are caused by human errors, where
  • the biggest type of data breach is sending data to the wrong person.
