School caned for losing 20K details

How much?

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

A Hampshire school has been criticised for losing nearly 20,000 people's personal details.

Back in March, Bay House School lost personal details, names, addresses, photographs and some medical information on 7,600 pupils along with details of teachers and parents. In total just under 20,000 people were hit.

An administrator used the same password for the school's website and data management system.

A pupil found out the password while hacking the school website, and then used the same password to get into other databases.

The Information Commissioner's Office said it was important to use different passwords.

The ICO said it was pleased the school had agreed to improve procedures including encrypting information and separating systems. ®
