UK: Birth certificate blunder and library leak among 170 data breaches reported at Sunderland City Council

Chris Binding reports:

Sunderland City Council has seen more than 150 reported data breaches last year, according to new figures.

A total of seven data breach cases were also referred to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) – which deals with more serious incidents.

Of this number, the council self-referred four cases while others were reported by members of the public.

They included a recent cyber attack on the council’s library database earlier this year where details from 45 customers were accessed.
