Data loss and security breaches

Request

I am requesting under the Freedom of Information Act, information about
loss of personal data by the council and breaches of security involving
personal data held by the council.

I would like to know:

A) All incidents in the past 24 months where personal data held by the
council had been lost, stolen, or the security protecting personal data
held by the council had been breached

B) The date these incidents occurred

C) Details of what data were lost, stolen or had its security breached,
including the number of people whose personal data were involved

D) An estimate of the cost of losing the data, including any fines incurred
for losing data

E) What measures the council took to protect privacy as a result of the
incident

If the decision is made to withhold some of this information using
exemptions in the Data Protection Act, please inform me of that fact, cite
the exemptions used in each case, and provide me with all the requested
information that is not withheld.

If some parts of this request are easier to answer than others, I would ask
that you release the available information as soon as possible.

If you need any clarification then please do not hesitate to contact me.
Under Section 16 it is your duty to provide advice and assistance and so I
would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any
way.
