The University of Greenwich has been fined £120,000.00 by the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) after being found guilty of allowing personal and sensitive data they hold to be exposed.
The fine comes off the back of a serious data breach where the data for some 20,000 university students and staff was compromised from a micro-site that had been used in 2004 for a training conference. This micro-site was not closed or secured, and was comprised in 2013, and then multiple attacks in 2016 allowed hackers access to the university’s web-server.
