Nursing and Midwifery Council - Data Loss
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has fined the Nursing and Midwifery Council £150,000 after it lost three unencrypted DVDs.
It is alleged that the DVDs contained evidence and personal information from two vulnerable children.
Deputy commissioner and director of data protection at the ICO, David Smith, explained, “It would be nice to think that data breaches of this type are rare, but we’re seeing incidents of personal data being mishandled again and again.”
Not even Miranda could make a joke about this.
