City Council Fined £150,000 for loss of unencrypted laptops

posted in Cyber-SecurityCyber-Security ● 20 Jun 2013

The Information Commisioner’s Office (ICO) has served a Scotland based City Council with a fine of £150,000 after two unencrypted laptops were stolen from offices which were in the process of being refurbished.The ICO is responsible for enforcing breaches of the Data Protection Act. The seventh principle of this act states that “Appropriate technical and organisational measures shall be taken against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.”One of the laptops stolen contained personal data relating to 20,143 individuals as well as bank account details for 6,069 individuals. While there is currently no indication that damage has been caused using this information there is significant risk that this may have happened.This case again highlights the importance of ensuring adequate care is taken in protecting critical data both on and off-site.Redstor’s range of secure, cloud-based services enables organisations to more easily comply with the Data Protection Act. Our Online Backup service helps ensure data is safely backed up offsite in an encrypted format.
