Every police officer in Northern Ireland has data compromised in ‘monumental’ breach due to human error


The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has reportedly been involved in a major data breach affecting officers and civilian staff.

The breach involves the names, ranks and other personal data, but does not involve the officers’ and civilians’ private addresses, the Press Association reports.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has been notified about the incident.

An ICO spokesperson said: “The Police Service of Northern Ireland has made us aware of an incident and we are assessing the information provided.”
