Be Safe. Shred or Wipe it. Avoid the ICO fines!

Written by: Alex MacColl

This week, Norfolk County Council were slapped a £60k fine for incorrectly disposing of a filing cabinet containing old paperwork. Just seven documents which were sensitive were found resulting in an investigation and a hefty fine. Read about this further here.

Imagine the fine for an errant hard drive with tens of thousands of files – or a lost flash drive within a laptop bag or a piece of furniture. Fines for private profit making businesses are also far greater and are set to rise under the revised DP act due in a few months time.
