Confidential Personal Data Leaks Are Accidental

Confidential Personal Data Leaks Are Accidental

According to a recent research, public bodies are unintentionally releasing confidential personal data. According to the results of the research, 154 accidental data leaks made by UK councils, government bodies, police, the NHS and other agencies have been recorded over the last 6 years. In other words, confidential data is being accidentally released every two weeks on average.


As you know, public bodies operate under a code of conduct that requires personal data to be removed or anonymized before data release.

The first concerns were raised after a county council in the UK accidentally published information on over 1,400 children earlier in 2015. The information included names, addresses, religion and special educational needs status. The leak was discovered within a few hours of publication, data was removed, and the incident was reported to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

The statistics says that councils are the worst offenders, with 33% of the leak originating from local government. In many cases, there are repeat offenders: for example, the Home Office released confidential data twice, and so did the courts service in response to FOI requests. Several months ago, Greater Manchester police released names, ranks and internal details of police officers.

One large data breach occurred three years ago, when Islington council mistakenly released an FOI response containing personal details (sexuality and names) of more than 2,300 individuals or families. Overall, Islington has had 5 troubling data breaches for the last 6 years. There was also a case where a council accidentally included license plate details of more than 30,000 people who had got parking tickets.

metazip avatarApparently, the current thought is data, data, data, not secure, secure, secure. If you don't want information "Leaked" you don't provide access to it. Very simple and the basics of Computer 101. For those youngins who weren't around, we used to have a phrase "Getting Zapped" where all your data was lost due to loss of power, loss of hardware (still happens today) because you didn't keep it separated from the computer. The rule for the day was keeping your data safe by storing it on another medium.

Laziness leads to the current loss of data at an alarming rate because someone, who should never be in charge, made the decision to let everyone have access to information via the internet. While this may well serve the people for constructive data, such as weather information, census data, encyclopedias, etc. it has not bode well for truly private information.

Take this proverbial bull by the horns and demand from your government leaders to keep personal private data from any internet access for anyone. Then we will only have data stolen when we have a physical forced entry and still maintain the integrity of the internet.

edddy avatarThe title of the article is Confidential Personal Data Leaks Are Accidental, but it's about who screws up the must, if the data is Accidentally Leak, why the person responsible is not reprimanded.
