More charities in trouble over data protection

The most recent figures from the Information Commissioner’s Office shows that charities suffered 53 data breaches in the six months to March this year. This is more than double the amount in the same period the previous year, and charities now rank fourth in the category of organisations most likely to fail to properly protect personal data.
