public sector GDPR fines

Public sector GDPR fines set to change

Public sector GDPR fines are set to change following an open letter that has been published by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in recent weeks.

It is looking like there may be a shift in focus away from the need to issue large fines in the public sector, and instead focusing on how standards could be raised across the board.

Regulatory fines are a separate matter to the rights of victims who can still be eligible to claim compensation for any distress or loss that has been caused by a data breach. You should always contact our data privacy team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.

NHS data breach between 2018 and 2019
July 08, 2022

Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust ICO fine

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has issued a fine in the sum of £78,400 for a data breach involving the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.

This particular breach that involves a Gender Identity Clinic service is one we are already more than familiar with as we are representing people who were affected by the incident. Particularly personal and sensitive information has been leaked as a result of this email breach, so we are not surprised to see that regulatory action has also taken place.

Any ICO fine is a completely separate matter to those who are pursuing private compensation claims with us on a No Win, No Fee basis. We are coming close to the three-year anniversary of when the breach took place, which means that certain time-frames to join this action are coming to a close soon. You should speak to us as soon as possible if you have yet to claim as a victim of this incident.
