I refer the Deputy to Parliamentary Question No. 349 of 18th May in which details of data breaches for the requested time period were provided.

As previously advised, the majority of breaches experienced were deemed to be of zero or low risk, and were therefore not required to be reported to the Data Protection Commission.  All breaches were managed internally with steps taken to ensure that similar breaches would not reoccur.

Those breaches that met the threshold to be referred to the Data Protection Commission were quickly resolved to the satisfaction of that office.
