Police investigate DNA database breach
Crown Research Institute staffer suspended as investigation continues
By Randal Jackson Wellington | Wednesday, 3 June, 2009
Police are investigating an alleged breach of the National DNA Profile
Databank, managed by Crown Research Institute ESR.
ESR says it has been made aware of an allegation of inappropriate
disclosure by a staff member of information from New Zealand's DNA
"ESR is treating this matter very seriously. The Police were informed of
the allegation and initiated a criminal investigation. A staff member has
been suspended pending the outcome of the police and internal
investigations," it says in a statement released after Computerworld
initiated inquiries into rumours of the breach.
ESR says it is undertaking a number of steps to continue to ensure every
measure is in place to protect the integrity of the databank information
and how it is accessed.
