Hackers to be let loose on medical records

Health minister Ab Klink is to let computer hackers loose on the government’s new digital medical records system, news agency ANP reports.

The hackers will be asked to find loopholes in the system and make sure that access to individual files is properly secure.
Privacy is one of the main concerns about the centralised system, known as the EPD, which will be introduced later this year.
