ICO warning after Scottish charity reveals personal data in email error

Industry News | 25/10/21

The ICO issued a warning urging organisations to revisit their bulk email practices after failures by HIV Scotland led to a £10,000 fine.

The breach of data protection law involved an email to 105 people which included patient advocates representing people living in Scotland with HIV. All the email addresses were visible to all recipients, and 65 of the addresses identified people by name.
