University of East Anglia investigates another data leak

Warwick Ashford reports:

The University of East Anglia is investigating a second personal data leak in six months after an employee’s personal data was sent to hundreds of postgraduate research students.

The email was sent on 5 November to about 300 recipients in the social science faculty. When the error was discovered, the university sent an email apology saying that, where possible, its IT department had deleted the email sent in error because of the sensitive nature of its contents.
