Decline In Jersey Data Breaches

There's been a drop in the number of complaints about data breaches.

Jersey's Office of the Information Commissioner says reports have almost halved in the first two months of this year.

That's from an average of around 40 each month at the end of 2018.

The island's Information Commissioner, Dr Jay Fedorak says it's down to better awareness amongst businesses about securing personal information:

“We have been educating islanders on the types of data breaches to report, including a very successful series of presentations as part of the recent Data Protection Week. These include implementing simple data protection measures, for example, turning off auto fill on emails to prevent personal data being sent to the wrong person.”

The finance sector continues to have the largest number of reported breaches:
