Loss of sensitive personal data.
An email containing sensitive information was sent to an unknown 3rd party and nine case files were temporarily lost during a move.
Undertaking issued to ensure that staff are made aware that they may not send data to personal email accounts.
Reason for action
Information was emailed despite a policy being in place that stated this could only be done if sent to an equally secure recipient. A filing cabinet was not checked for case files during a move.
