Asperger’s charity loses children’s data

Personal information relating to 80 children with Asperger’s syndrome has been stolen from a Sheffield charity.

A laptop containing names, addresses and medical information was stolen from Asperger’s Children and Carers Together (ACCT).

The computer was taken from the home of an employee and reported in December.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said the incident breached data protection and the charity must ensure “information is encrypted”.
