Second worst in region for data breaches
A report published today reveals that in Yorkshire only Doncaster (106 cases) had more breaches of data protection rules than the York Council.
72 of these did not result in any disciplinary action.
The Council declined to provide details of the individual incidents.
Nationally many cases resulted from the loss or theft of laptop computers
There were also 33 breaches in Kirklees, 26 in the East Riding and 12 in Wakefield.
The North Yorkshire County Council declined to respond to the FOI request.
Meanwhile more “cart before horse” secret decisions are taken
Before the horse slipped out of the York Council stable, there was time for more decisions to be taken without any prior notice.
These have included, so far, this week:
- The final terms of the sale – for £3 million – of Oliver House to developers McCarthy and Stone (NB. This had been discussed publicly at the last Executive meeting)
- A decision to close the Bishopthorpe Road car park on 20th September
- Agreement to safety improvements at the Manor Heath/Hallcroft Lane junction in Copmanthorpe
