Submission + - UK Watchdog Hands Out Biggest Data Breach Fine->

twoheadedboy writes: "The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) today handed out its biggest fine yet, telling Powys County Council to hand over £130,000 for a serious snafu. The local authority made a major blunder when details of a child protection case were sent to the wrong recipient. It was believed two pages from one report were mistakenly collected from a printer and mixed up with other papers from a different case. The details were sent out without the council checking the documents. Almost exactly the same thing happened before, when the same recipient was mistakenly sent data on a vulnerable child. Is the ICO finally showing its teeth at a time when it is coming under fire for alleged weaknesses in cracking down on journalists?"
