ICO reports on latest data security trends

The ICO has analysed the data security incidents that were reported to it (the latest is from Q2 2020/21) and it is clear that in our sector, the biggest risks are from phishing emails and sending (by email or post) data to the wrong recipient.

Are your policies and procedures up to date for data breaches and IT security? If they haven’t been reviewed for a while, perhaps now would be a good time.

Do enquire about our Data Protection Review to get the assurance of an external assessment, for these and other data protection arrangements.
