Crime and justice: In the autumn of 2023, the Norwegian Data Protection Authority investigated how Nav processes sensitive personal data of users. The inspection revealed several serious errors and Nav received a record fine of NOK 20 million. One of the remarks is about the fact that many Nav employees have wide access to personal data, and that the control afterwards is too poor.

The agency has now appealed the decision from the Norwegian Data Protection Authority to the Norwegian Personal Protection Board, writes Klassekampen.

“The Norwegian Data Protection Authority goes a long way in suggesting that Nav’s resources have been prioritized incorrectly or that a simple job has been done. Nav disagrees with that,” the complaint states.

In Nav’s complaint, it is argued that there is “no legal basis for the Norwegian Data Protection Authority’s conclusions, nor that actual findings support the Norwegian Data Protection Authority’s conclusion”.
