Submission + - Health Trust Fined £175k For Website Gaffe->

twoheadedboy writes: "A health Trust in the UK has been slapped with a £175,000 fine after it published sensitive data of its own staff on the Internet. Torbay Care Trust in Torquay let a spreadsheet containing information such as religious background and sexual orientation remain open to everyone on its website for 19 weeks. Even though it said the data had not been used for malicious ends, the Trust accepted the fine and agreed to put additional measures in place to stop anything similar happening in the future. Still, goes to show how a simple mistake can end up costing you a a lot when it comes to data protection."
