Years ago our government established the identity register. Every Dane has unique number given to the person by birth. That number is the key access to information about a specific Dane.
Most of the numbers in the Identity register is now in the hans of criminals. Why?
Because we allowed the criminals easy access to our data!
Our sold the management of the register to a private firm. They wanted people with low income to work there so cut the saleries of their employees, so many left. They even imported a number of employees from India without conducting the needed security clearence.
The result? The security ended ip being non-existing. We can only blame ourselves because we did stop the new management from having a poor security.
