How is personal data protected in the Incomes Register?


The data breach and blackmailing incident in the private sector, covered widely in media in October 2020, has raised concerns about data security.

The data contained in the Incomes Register is stored and processed in a high-security environment, which means that both technical solutions and administrative measures are applied in order to protect the data in the register.

You do not need to take any special action to protect the personal data held by the Incomes Register and Tax Administration.

Data security is very important to the Tax Administration. There are no known issues that would compromise the data security of Tax Administration or Incomes Register services.
