Dear Sussex Police,

Over the last three years for which records are available:

1) how many instances have you recorded of serious data security
breaches by officers or civilian employees of your organisation
(usage of the terms "serious" and "data security breach" are
derived from guidance issued by the Information Commissioner e.g. Please provide, if held,
information relating to what type of breach occurred (for instance,
inappropriate or unlawful access to PCN data).

2) what action if any was taken as a result?

3) how many instances led to your organisation notifying the
Information Commissioner of the incident/s in question?

Yours faithfully,

George Foster

Sussex Police
