In this episode, I visit with Jonathan Armstrong to consider the recent regulatory fine leveled against London Borough of Newham £145,000 for a data breach involving the data of more than 200 people. It presents a situation where a data breach was literally a matter of life and death. Some of the issues and highlights are:
- What was the data and why was it so sensitive?
- How was the data leaked?
- How did the authorities determine the data breach?
- What as the basis of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) fine?
- What are the lessons to be learned?
