ICO: Lack of Staff Training Led to Breach
DATA LOSS—UKApril 20, 2012
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) says insufficient staff training has led to the breach of two unencrypted memory sticks from a London-based hospital, COMPUTERWORLD UK reports. According to an ICO undertaking , one memory stick contained the personal information of 600 maternity patients, while the other held medical data of 33 children. The ICO said, "Due to not having received up-to-date information on governance training, the employee was unaware that an encrypted device issued by the data controller should have been used."
