Wolverhampton City Council (Enforcement Notice): ICO 29 May 2014

ICO The ICO has issued an enforcement notice against Wolverhampton City Council, following an investigation into a data breach at the council that occurred in January 2012.

However, the social worker failed to remove highly sensitive information about the recipient’s sister that should not have been included.
