Former company employee prosecuted for unlawfully obtaining client data

The recent prosecution by the Information Commissioner’s Office of an employee who transferred information about company clients before moving to a new job sends a clear message about the consequences of unlawfully obtaining client data.

The former employee sent details of 957 clients to his personal email address before leaving to start a new role at a rival company. The email contained commercially sensitive information, which included personal data in the form of contact details and the purchase history of customers.
