Shell employees’ personal details leaked

A database of Shell’s staff has found its way onto the internet, including personal details of 170,000 employees and contractors, according to an article in Saturday’s Times.

 

Shell’s security department is now investigating how the details were emailed to seven non-governmental organisations (NGOs) including Greenpeace, Justice in Nigeria Now and Friends of the Earth.

 

Since the Blog has only this week had full training in data protection, it is well aware that under UK law, companies have a legal obligation to keep employees’ data secure.
