IE: CSO admits major data breach as 3,000 people’s details leaked in email gaffe

Alan O’Keeffe reports:

The Central Statistics Office has put its hands up concerning an error by a staff member which led to a serious breach of data protection rules.

Information on thousands of people who had worked for the CSO had been inadvertently sent to individuals as a result of the mistake.

The mistake, which resulted in information on more than 3,000 former employees being sent to four incorrect recipients via email, was detected on November 14.
