Reaction On Bounty Fined £400,000 By ICO


It has been reported that pregnancy club Bounty UK has been givena 400,000 fine by the ICO for illegally sharingthe personal information of more than 14 million people. In response to the news please see below comments fromAnjolaAdeniyi, technical leader for EMEA atSecuronix.

Anjola Adeniyi, Technical Leader for EMEA at Securonix:

“With this kind of illegal data sharing, mothers and babies may be unable to tell if they have suffered a data breach with one of Bounty’s third parties. The fine may have been greater if it wasn’t that the breach happened before GDPR came into effect. Hopefully the wider market can learn from Bounty’s experience, and avoid such misconducts.”
