Ca: King’s counselling department breaches students’ privacy

Amy O’Kruk reports:

A King’s staff member accidentally breached hundreds of students’ privacy when an email outed the list of students currently using King’s counselling department services for academic accommodation.

The privacy breach happened after a King’s University College staff member emailed 451 students to remind them to book appointments at King’s Counselling and Student Development to arrange academic accommodations for the 2016 academic year. Unfortunately, the email wasn’t blind carbon copied, so recipients could also view the other recipients of the email and their contact information.
