United Kingdom – Kent County Council


Exploit: Human error.
Kent County Council: Adoption service for the British county of Kent.

Risk to Small Business: 1.888 = Severe: Contact details for hundreds of adoptive parents was disclosed in an accidental council email. A member of staff copied a mailing list into the carbon copy (CC) section instead of the blind carbon copy (BCC) area, exposing the sensitive information. The council is currently investigating if the breach needs to be reported to the ICO, and if any fines will surface.

Individual Risk: 2.714 = Moderate: The exposure of personal information for adoptive parents and support workers has serious implications, with the potential to affect birth families and vulnerable children.

Customers Impacted: Approximately 300
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: Even innocent breaches come with significant repercussions. An honest mistake can spawn expensive fines and customer churn, and businesses should pay attention. By installing thresholds that protect employees from compromising sensitive data, security teams can save a company’s reputation and customer base.
