Everything You Need to Know About A Police Data Breach

Among all data breaches, police data breaches may be the most stressful on the affected individuals. Typically, the police, or more specifically the Ministry of Justice, deal with extra-sensitive data related to both victims and perpetrators of different crimes, but it is also responsible for data relating to their own staff too.

If you’ve been subject to a police data breach, you’ll want to know your rights and the actions you can take. That’s what we’re here for.


What is a Police Data Breach?

Most people subject to police data breaches may not be aware that they can make a claim against those responsible. While you might find it hard to believe that you can claim against the people whose job is to protect you, unfortunate situations do happen, and data loss isn’t to be taken lightly.

A police data breach can occur in a number of ways. Examples might include victims of abuse having their identities revealed, recorded police interviews being released in the public domain, or even staff data being mistakenly accessible to unauthenticated users. All these types of things have previously occurred and would be considered a data breach.

Needless to say, any data that the police are supposed to protect becomes a data breach if it is released, intentionally or unintentionally.

Frequently Asked Questions

If your data has been affected by a breach then there is a high likelihood that you will have received a notification regarding the breach. If you are not sure if you have been a victim of a police data breach then you can see if any breach has been reported to the ICO.

The ICO is the organisation responsible for investigating data breach incidents and taking necessary action, which can often include financial penalties. That being said, the ICO doesn’t compensate affected individuals, that’s left for the claim that you should pursue after you have been informed of a breach.
