Loss of sensitive personal information.
Loss of documents containing sensitive personal data included in a plastic wallet with flight and accommodation details given to a social work employee flying to another UK city.
Undertaking issued to ensure that a proper risk assessment is carried out prior to the removal from the office environment of documents containing sensitive personal data and that they are sufficiently secure in transit.
Reason for action
It was felt that the implications of including the case documents with the travel documents during the journey had been insufficiently considered.
