Enforcement action taken for the eighth time by ICO

In many organizations, personal details of clients are stored in the form of data on laptops, computer hard discs and storage devices like USB pen drives. Hastings and Rother Primary Care Trust (PCT) was not an exception. Large amounts of sensitive personal data regarding patients were stored in company computer equipment that was stolen.

The Information Commissionerís Office (ICO) has rated this incident as a Data Protection Act breach and ordered enforcement action against the PCT. This is not only a humbling occurrence for the PCT but also is expected to amount to potential future losses for the company.

This is the eighth time that the ICO has taken action against a company for data loss. Such data loss is demeaning for the company and results in a larger loss since the sensitive information can be used negatively against many innocent people.

Naturally every organisation would like to avoid such an occurrence. Online data backup is the easiest way to keep any important data safely protected. Online data backup is a shield against any and every type of data loss.

Online backup keeps your data safe even in case of natural disasters since the data is stored in a server at a distant location. So choose online backup and live worry free.
