Kiwis’ vetting information readily available to anyone, thanks to SIS
Posted by te2ataria on April 7, 2016
Kiwis’ private information, demanded by SIS for security clearances, not secure!!
“About 5000 people a year fill out forms which could include highly intrusive and private details about themselves to the Government, relating to sexuality, social habits, health, finances, religion and political affiliations.”
However, a review of the SIS has revealed the vetting information demanded for security clearances is not secure.
“I found electronic records for the largest category of clearance holders and candidates were accessible at any time to [at the very least] 60 or so staff who carry out security clearances,” said Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security Cheryl Gwyn.
“Under standard data protection requirements, staff should have access only to files that they are working on and only while those files are active.”
She also found that some private information was being used for “other purposes”.
Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei said the SIS was acting outside their own policy.
“While it is good the SIS have accepted the recommendations of the IGIS, it is frankly farcical how often the SIS break their own rules,” she said.
“The SIS’s inability to comply with their own rules is the reason why they should not be getting any more powers.”
