Individual breach #2
Hot on the heels of news of the first employee receiving a fine for a DP breach came an announcement that a Council worker illegally shared children and parents’ data via Snapchat.
Samira Bouzkraoui, aged 24, took a screenshot of a Southwark Council spreadsheet concerning children and their eligibility for free school meals before sending it to the estranged parent of one of the pupils via Snapchat.
She was fined £850 and was also ordered to pay £713 costs when she appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
This one is much closer to home for most of my clients in the education and local authority communities... so be warned!
