Businesses more reliant on ICO as data breach reports explode

The UK data regulator has revealed its staff received four times as many reports of personal data breaches during an “unprecedented” 2018/19 against the previous financial year.

Similarly, the number of complaints received from the public rose from 21,019 in 2017/18 to 41,661, according to figures revealed in the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) annual report. Organisations were also twice as reliant on the ICO for advice or guidance during 2018/19.
