Racing Post escapes ICO fine after leaking info of 677K punters


Compare and contrast with the £180,000 handed to the MoJ for failing to encrypt hard drives. Funny how the fines skyrocket when public authorities funded by the tax payer are involved. The more cynical amongst us might be tempted to come to the conclusion that the ICO is little more than a mechanism for the government to claw back funding.

How is failing to secure a website any better than failing to secure the hardware?
