The U.K. Information Commissioner's Office reports that it is fining a former National Health Service manager for sending personal information from her work email to a personal account without authorization. An email exchange between the manager’s work account and her personal email included personally identifiable information for 13 individuals who had submitted applications to the medical facility. In a statement, the ICO said the woman was "an experienced practice manager and had completed relevant training in line with NHS guidelines" and deemed that she "would have been aware of appropriate practices in terms of handling personal data." The ICO also reports a fine for the London Borough of Newham after it disclosed personal information of more than 200 people on a police intelligence database.
