Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has confirmed that the information used by the Trinidad Guardian to publish its story, alleging that his personal information was available on the dark web was NOT his data.
In a brief statement on Tuesday evening, the PM said the data profile of ID and DP is for another family member.
Dr Rowley said: “The latest additional information that is circulating from a stolen spreadsheet is not my bank details. It appears to be my TT Government telephone bill account, which is somewhere on TSTT’s system. That piece of data has information which is accurate but not secret.
However, this data or any other for that matter, falling into the hands of criminals, is deeply disturbing and this occurrence should be treated with the greatest competence and utmost sincerity by the company.”
He added that TSTT is also expected to treat this matter as a national security threat and ensure that the public trust is restored, preserved, and handled with absolute professionalism.
