First we had ERYC solicitor Peter Atkinson breach personal data of a resident by sending me their email address, landline phone number and mobile phone number. There was no legitimate reason to do this.
I dutifully reported the breach to County Hall where upon Matthew Turner, ERYC Information Governance Project Manager requested:
“Could you please delete the information you hold”
It is my opinion that the resident who has had their Data breached may now take legal action against ERYC.
Yet ERYC are requesting I delete the evidence?
There is no way I will destroy evidence that may be required in a future Court case. I will seek advice from ICO.
