The Ceredigion Council data breach showed the severity of a council data breach. Councils and local authorities hold a lot of personal and sensitive data about us.
Unfortunately, the Welsh council failed to uphold their important security responsibilities. It was discovered (a few weeks ago) that names, addresses and information about medical conditions was exposed on their website. The personal and sensitive documents had been left on the website and were accessible to anyone for 11 years, since 2007.
This is a serious data breach. Anyone affected can approach our legal team for advice today.
