Credit Mutuel Units Inspected by French Data Protection Watchdog

Jan. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Two Credit Mutuel-CIC units were inspected by France’s data protection authority following a data system failure reported on Dec. 28 by weekly newspaper Canard Enchaine, the Paris-based watchdog said today.

The Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertes searched an information-technology unit in Strasbourg, France, and a newspaper belonging to the bank in the French town of Woippy, CNIL said on its website.

“The commission is now analyzing the numerous pieces of evidence gathered during the inspections to decide what to do,” CNIL said.

Credit Mutuel-CIC declined to comment on the searches, Bruno Brouchiquan, a spokesman for the bank, said in an e-mail.
