Inquiry responds to Information Commissioner

18 July 2018

Following the Information Commissioner's announcement today that they have fined the Inquiry for a data breach in February 2017, we have issued the following statement:

"The Inquiry takes its data protection obligations very seriously and we have apologised to those affected by the data breach.

"After a wide-ranging review by external experts, we have amended our handling processes for personal data to ensure they are robust and the risk of a further breach is minimised."

The Information Commissioner has acknowledged that the Inquiry apologised immediately when the breach came to light and took into account our swift action in reviewing and amending the way we handle data.
