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:

  1. What was the data and why was it so sensitive?
  2. How was the data leaked?
  3. How did the authorities determine the data breach?
  4. What as the basis of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) fine?
  5. What are the lessons to be learned?
