The ICO has fined Islington Council a total of £70,000. Its Ticket Viewer system, which allows people to view CCTV image or video of their alleged parking offence, had design defaults, meaning the personal data of up to 89,000 people was at risk of being accessed by others. An investigation revealed that there had been unauthorised access to 119 documents, affecting 71 people. The ICO found that the council should have tested the system both prior to going live and regularly after that and, in the absence of such testing, did not take appropriate technical measures to keep the personal data secure. As such, the council was in breach of the Data Protection Act 1998.
