Missing information deemed “medium risk” in the last 12 months included a hard copy file about a property; a personnel file containing a staff member’s employment history; a briefcase of “various papers” left on a train; and a file with personal and business information lost when a third party went in to receivership.

The data included a personnel file lost by the HR Department, business information from the Department for Economy and Transport, and papers lost by the Legal Services Department.
