Data Protection

There have been a couple of stark warnings to employees tempted to breach data privacy rights.

  • In August it was reported that the Information Commissioner’s office, the ICO, fined a banker £880 for snooping on colleagues’ bank accounts. The employee who had access to view customer bank accounts in his money laundering investigating role allowed curiosity to get the better of him and looked at some colleagues’ bank accounts for salary information. He was found guilty of unlawfully obtaining or accessing personal data under the Data Protection Act 1998, s 55. For more information on complying with the data protection regime, see our Practice Note:
