Government reports 11 more 'instances of unusual activity' with FOIPOP website

The provincial government says 323 Nova Scotians had sensitive personal information accessed due to the breach of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIPOP) website.

Internal Services says in an update on Monday that there have been eleven more "instances of unusual activity", but it did not involve new information and no additional Nova Scotians were impacted.

The province says the breaches involved the download of almost 900 of the same documents accessed in the breach previously reported on April 11th. 

Government says the FOIPOP website is being tested to ensure it's secure before going back online, and a third-party has been contracted by government to do further testing.

Trans Union, a credit reporting agency, will provide one year of free service for the Nova Scotians who had personal information accessed.
