My recent story for the Hackney Citizen gave details of how Hackney Council had unwittingly made a number of residents’ personal data available on their website. The data breach affected more than 30 people who had contacted the council recently about licensing decisions, with details published including names, home addresses, mobile phone numbers and email addresses.
Space limitations meant my article couldn’t list all of the licensing decisions affected, so below I’ve published the full list, together with some details of the personal data found in each case:
- New Premises Licence – Unit A, Gaumont Tower, Dalston Square, E8
- Sub-committee meeting: 3 January 2013
- Personal details published included the mobile phone numbers of three residents who had expressed views on the licence application
