The Irish Data Protection Commission released its report on the Public Services Card project, The Irish Times reports. The DPC ordered the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection to stop processing personal information of 3.2 million citizens tied to the issuance of the cards. The DPC identified eight adverse findings about the PSC project, including its determination that the privacy statement published by the department lacked sufficient information. Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection Regina Doherty said her department will not comply with the DPC’s findings. The Department of Social Protection also alleged the DPC breached its right to fair procedures.
