Data breaches - over half are due to carelessness, says ICO | Metawriting | Scoop.it
The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has announced that the majority of data breaches in the first quarter of 2013 were due to carelessness in the way that the information was handled.

 

That's according to the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) which says 175 out of 335 incidents it examined between April 1 and June 30 were due to personal data being “disclosed in error”.

 

Half of data breaches are due to people being careless with what they do with private information. How can we all help to reduce this problem?

 

===> Do we need better user education? <===
