UK Public Sector Fined For Bulk of Data Loss [bbc.co.uk]
The UK's private sector accounted for more than a third of all reported data breaches over 11 months, but less than 1% of the resulting fines, according to a Freedom of Information request.

The data was issued by the Information Commissioner's Office after a request by satellite system-maker Viasat.

It shows five fines totalling 790,000 were imposed on the public sector and one 1,000 penalty on a private firm.

The release covered self-reported personal data security breaches between 22 March 2011 and 17 February 2012.



As these are self-reported, I would have thought that the private sector probably would have just kept quiet.
