£40k emails

Emailing confidential personal data to the wrong addressees cost Surrey County Council a fine from the Information Commissioner's Office of £40k ... for each of the three times it happened in less than a year.

Somewhat belatedly, the council said:
"Measures have already been taken to reduce the risk of sensitive personal data being wrongly addressed and extra training on handling data securely has been given."
If only they had done that before the first incident!
