Information Commissioner’s Office fines Councils

Following two breaches of the Data Protection Act (DPA) by Telford and Wrekin Council, the Information Commissioner’s Office has imposed a fine of £90,000.  The breaches involved the disclosure of confidential and sensitive personal data relating to four children who were considered vulnerable.

The Council is now taking action which includes providing Safeguarding Services staff with further training and support on data protection and information security.
