Loss of personal data
A business continuity bag containing emergency response documents and personal data relating to employees was stolen from a locked vehicle belonging to an officer.
Undertaking issued to ensure that the minimum amount of personal data necessary for emergency business is taken off site and that staff are fully training in data protection policy.
Reason for action
The data controller had some relevant guidance in place at the time of the incident, but could have provided clearer written instruction on the secure storage of hard copy personal data off site for emergency.
