Business fined after data subject access request failings

A business that failed to respond fully to a data subject access request and later ignored an enforcement notice served on it for doing so has been fined £15,000 for breaching UK data protection laws.

SCL Elections, better known as the business behind the now defunct data analytics company Cambridge Analytica, was prosecuted at Hendon Magistrates’ Court in London on Wednesday.

SCL Elections pleaded guilty, via its administrators, to breaching section 47(1) of the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998 in a prosecution brought by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Under that section of the Act, a person who fails to comply with an enforcement notice, an information notice or a special information notice is guilty of an offence.
