Lawmaker seeks probe of data breach at DNR

Email

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A state representative has asked Minnesota's legislative auditor to investigate a data privacy breach at the Department of Natural Resources.

The DNR announced earlier this week that an employee accessed the drivers' or motor vehicle records of about 5,000 Minnesotans without authorization. The DNR says that employee is no longer with the agency, and that it found no evidence that the data was sold, disclosed to others or used for criminal purposes.
