MoH urged take immediate recommendations in the AG’s Report on MySejahtera data leak
KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Consumer Choice Center (MCCC) urges the Ministry of Health (MoH) to implement immediate security measures to prevent the continued theft of personal data from the MySejahtera application.
This follows the Auditor General’s Report 2021 Series 2, which revealed that the super-admin account downloaded three million Malaysians’ personal data in the MySejahtera application from October 28 to October 31, 2021.
MCCC representative Tarmizi Anuwar urged the MoH to improve security measures to ensure the safety of consumers and that such incidents do not happen again.
“The MoH needs to act immediately to tighten the data security management system and the MySejahtera application as recommended by the Auditor General’s Report to prevent the intrusion of consumer data again.
