Data-nicking UK car repairman jailed six months instead of copping a fine

Great. Now, how about applying this newfound severity, with jail time proportional to the volumes, to the bosses involved in some of the bigger data breach....Thinking Cambridge Analytica

Cambridge Analytica will never be properly investigate and prosecuted, because of the company's connections to the security services, and all the dirt that could be dished. I expect a token fine, paid quietly and promptly, and everything swept under the carpet, whilst the same people go on to conduct the same business under a different name. Although they'll probably be more careful to try and avoid being caught in future.
