Greater Manchester Police data concerns – ICO report

At the start of the year, the UK’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), issued a report highlighting concerns in respect of Greater Manchester Police data practises.

A number of alarming findings appear to have been made, and the overall headline is that the ICO has little assurance in respect of the force being able to ensure that data protection law is complied with in some areas. Given that the police must store and process a significant wealth of very personal and sensitive information, the report makes for concerning reading.

No one is above the law, and this includes the police. Victims can be eligible to claim data breach compensation when it is the police at fault for a breach, and we can help.

Fraudsters accessing your computer from data breaches: a real threat

In our digital age, cybercriminals are constantly seeking new methods of stealing and misusing information, typically for their own financial gain. Your private data can be a key tool for criminals, as it can give them a direct route via which to target you. As a result, when your personal information is exposed, it can lead to fraudsters accessing your computer and your private accounts in some cases.

As cybercrime continues to grow, it is vital that third-party data controllers do all they can to protect the personal information which they store and process. From local councils to huge corporations, many kinds of organisations hold extensive personal information, and all must abide by data protection law to ensure it stays safe. Unfortunately, we still do not see satisfactory data protection across the board.

No one should have to contend with fraudsters’ deceitful tactics. If your data falls into the hands of criminals as a result of a third-party data breach, you could be entitled to claim compensation. The law is there to allow you to assert your rights in such situations, and our expert team of lawyers can help you to do so.
