The Dutch data protection authority, Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, has fined health insurance company Menzis 50,000 euros for its mishandling of medical data under the Dutch Data Protection Act. In 2018, the DPA found Menzis was careless with its processing of personal data. Menzis was given time to improve its processing and avoid a fine but failed to do so during the time frame set by the DPA. Fellow health insurer VGZ was also sanctioned for data-processing issues but avoided a fine following improvements to its practices. (Original article is in Dutch.)
