Another data loss incident recently happened in Leicester City Council. The council bosses have already admitted that one computer memory stick which contained vital details about many children and their families went missing from a nursery. The council is not sure whether this data was lost or stolen.
The memory stick contained details of about 80 children, which included their names, telephone numbers, addresses, and dates of birth. The memory stick did not contain any kind of financial details. Council chief executive Sheila Lock added that they will not take this incident lightly. They also want to express their concern and apologise for this loss. They also believe this to be an unacceptable, serious breach and will investigate to take appropriate action.
Ms Lock also added that she is not willing to blame anyone before the investigation is completed. As of now, there is no evidence of the memory stick falling in wrong hands. Until the investigation is completed, no one will be sacked or suspended.
