Latest ICO enforcement action

shutterstock_103173653Data breaches and lax security practices continue to dominate as the trigger for formal enforcement actions taken by the ICO.

In July the ICO published details of 5 new undertakings and 2 ‘follow-ups’. The organisations involved were:

  • Community Transport (Brighton & Hove Area) Ltd
  • Parole Board for England and Wales
  • Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust
  • King’s College London
  • Western Health & Social Care Trust
  • Rochdale Borough Council
  • Bests Cadwaladr University Health Board

All the undertakings relate to breaches of the 7th Principle and the consistent theme running through all these actions by the ICO is the need to implement and repeat staff training.
