Data Protection Officer In SBC La-La Land

Upon publishing SBC Industrial Scale Data Breach I received a couple of emails that confirm Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) has become La-La Land.

Lisa Dixon Looking Into La-La Land? 

I will begin by explaining a few simple facts:

  1. A SBC Councillor is NOT an SBC employee
  2. All SBC Councillors MUST be registered as Data Controllers
  3. All SBC Councillors MUST address all Subject Access Requests (SAR) they receive
  4. If an SBC Councillor wants a Third Party, including SBC, to handle their Data and/or deal with any SAR they receive, a Service Level Agreement MUST be signed by both parties.

Alison Johnson – SBC Data Protection Officer

Alison Johnson, SBC Data Protection Officer, on 24 July 2019 at 11.37, sent SBC Councillors the email below.

“… remind everyone of their responsibilities when dealing with personal data that is either collected, collated or processed by SBC, either as an organisation or yourselves as individuals on behalf of the Council.”

Given her many years of experience as a Data Protection Officer Alison should be fully aware that as Councillors are not employees they DO NOT and indeed CAN NOT collect, collate or process Data on behalf of SBC.

For a Data Protection Officer to suggest they can, is only possible if residing in SBC La-La Land.

Lisa Dixon, SBC Director of Legal & Democratic Services 

Talk of SBC La-La Land could never be complete without the presence of Lisa Dixon, SBC Director of Legal & Democratic Services.

On 24 July 2019 at 11.58, the Queen of SBC La-La Land sent SBC Councillors an email stating:

“Following on from Alison’s email I would reiterate the importance of complying with all relevant legislation”

Oh, dear. It appears our Lisa is unaware that as SBC Councillors are not employees they DO NOT and indeed CAN NOT collect, collate or process Data on behalf of SBC.

How does it go Lisa?

“I would reiterate the importance of complying with all relevant legislation”

Another whoops in SBC La-La Land. Yet again our Lisa is taking centre stage.

NB: Lisa Dixon is THE top legal officer at SBC!

Email To Mike Greene, Chief Executive, SBC

Dear Mike,

In the interests of transparency, could I please refer you to (LINK)

You have my utmost sympathy for having to enter SBC La-La Land every day.

Look on the bright side only another year and a half to go before Devo.

If I can be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards,

Andy Strangeway
