NZ Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) database: Breached 100x

One massive database. Info on nearly every New Zealander. More than 100 breaches (though many were minor). But that’s still small consolation to anyone whose data may be at risk.

It does seem that CDPs are a relatively low priority: they rank sixth on the list of new systems and eighth on the list of systems to replace.
