Norway's Data Inspectorate (Datailsynet) has released new data security guidelines that require encryption of paycheck stubs. The guidelines apply to all employers that are covered by Norwegian tax regulations, and require the encryption of all pay stubs issued to employees' personal e-mail addresses, whether issued by the company or by external accounting firms. Electronic pay stubs sent to employees' company e-mail addresses need not be encrypted but must satisfy a number of new requirements regarding storage, copying, and forwarding.
