Bupa fined after customer details offered on dark web

Bupa has been fined ?175,000 after an employee stole details of more than half a million customers and put them up for sale on the dark web.
The employee from the UK-based healthcare group stole the information of 547,000 customers and offered it for sale online, said the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
The data included names, dates of birth, email addresses and nationality, and came from a system holding records on 1.5 million people."Bupa failed to recognise that people's personal data was at risk and failed to take reasonable steps to secure it," said Steve Eckersley, the ICO's director of investigations."Our investigation found material inadequacies in the way Bupa safeguarded personal data."The inadequacies were systemic and appear to have gone unchecked for a long time. On top of that, the ICO's investigation found no satisfactory explanation for them."
