Data Protection Breach

12 October 2012

Following the ICO’s ruling on Norwood’s Data Protection breach, we issued the following statement:

"Norwood found itself, within its adoption service, to be in an isolated breach of the Data Protection Act and reported itself, voluntarily, to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) when it was discovered.

Norwood took immediate steps to tighten its procedures in line with the Act to ensure that an incident of this kind will not be repeated."
