DATA PROTECTION: The rules are changing

26 May 2017  

Stricter regulations on handling personal data are set to come into force next year. Stephanie Prior reports

It was recently reported that Greater Manchester Police lost three unencrypted DVDs in the royal mail post. The DVDs apparently contained footage of police interviews with victims of sexual and violent crimes. The DVDs were sent in the post by recorded delivery to the National Crime Agency’s Serious Crime Analysis Section but they never arrived. As a consequence Greater Manchester Police were fined £150,000.
