Data Breach Notifications Up 50%

There has been a 50% increase in the number of data-security breach notifications to the Data Protection Officer in Ireland compared to 2013. This is the first annual report released by Helen Dixon, who took over as head of the office from Billy Hawkes, who retired last year.

Controversies investigated include a possible breach at the Water and Department of Education, who collect peoples' Personal Public Service number (PPS).
