So that’s all about us, but what else has been happening this week?
The biggest news in security this week is the story surrounding Yahoo. The company recently revealed details of over 500 million users were breached. The hack itself took place in 2014 but it has only just been made known to the public. You can read more about this story on our website next week.
Also in the news this week has been a story revolving around the Information Commissioner’s Office. Do you hold any data or control any personal information? You are then required by law to register with the ICO unless you are exempt. More than 400,000 organisations are currently registered, are you? Register under the Data Protection Act here.
Staying with the ICO, we also published an article surrounding the action they’ve taken towards organisations who do not adequately protect the data they hold and control. The piece of news details how the UK’s independent authority fined Hampshire County Council £100,000 after documents containing personal details of over 100 people were found in a disused building. Read more on the story here.
