UK: Six years’ worth of personal data at risk in National Lottery Community Fund data breach
Stephen Delahunty reports:
A data breach at the National Lottery Community Fund has left more than six years of contact and bank details exposed to fraudulent behaviour.
The grant-giver has apologised after data provided to it between September 2013 and December 2019 by UK Portfolio, England funding and Building Better Opportunities customers was breached.
The NLCF declined to confirm how the breach occurred or how many individuals or organisations were affected, only that customers in its Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales funding programmes were unaffected.
