Even the regulator can get it wrong !

FCA reveals string of data blunders’ – as noted in this recent article, data leakage isn’t just the territory of us mere mortals whilst it is slightly ironic that the regulators themselves aren’t infallible.

Given the powers now afforded to the ICO to ‘fine first warn later’ (incidents can attract a £500k fine if provisions to protect customers data are deemed inadequate), I wonder what tolerance may be afforded to those outside the regulator for such incidents?

My suspicion is very little !
