The ICO gets teeth at long last

After years of being an enforcement also ran the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is finally going to get some teeth to deal with those that contravene data protection principles – see the details here

With the government now in agreement to beef up fines to £500,000 we may start to see those that look after our data take their jobs more seriously.Hopefully the next step will be a data breach notification law as well, so when our personal data is lost we have some come back. I’ll watch this space with interest.
