He revealed that the Commission had sunk resources to make sure the country’s colossal database was adequately secured and protected from the reach of data thieves.

Aziz said the agency went to the lengths to safeguard the database as there are reports about data theft worldwide, which is why they aren’t leaving any stone unturned or taking the protection of the identities for granted.
