Ireland’s Office of the Data Protection Commissioner is investigating a credit-reporting agency after a series of breaches of the company’s databases, Bloomberg reports. Deputy Commissioner Gary Davis said the office has opened a preliminary inquiry into Dublin-based Experian’s data security practices following reports that the company’s database had been breached multiple times since 2006, the report states. “At this stage, all we’re doing is probing the matter based on media reports,” Davis said.
