A story broke on the BBC earlier this afternoon, stating that the security systems at a fire service have been breached, with staff data being accessed in the process. On Friday night, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service was told about an information security breach relating to employees' personal data.

A 59-year-old woman from Bridgend has been arrested in connection with data protection offences. The fire service did not disclose how many people were affected, but said it was limited to its own employees.

The matter has been reported to the Information Commissioner's Office and the fire service said it was working with employees and unions to "mitigate any potential risk to its staff and also to assist individuals taking their own actions to mitigate such risk".

Members of the British Security Industry Association’s Information Destruction section have welcomed a new self-assessment tool launched by the Information Commissioners Office.

The self-assessment tool helps small and medium sized organisations to assess their compliance with the Data Protection Act. The toolkit provides links to guidance and further information on what they need to do to comply with the Data Protection Act.

Information Commissioner, Christopher Graham, said: “Good data protection practice makes business sense. It can lead to better, more efficient customer service and help to protect and enhance your reputation. It could also help you to avoid a fine.”
