£73,000 fines for ex T-Mobile employees, found guilty of major data theft

PDP News yesterday reported on the convictions of two former T-Mobile employers, who have been found guilty and fined for ‘illegal activity relating to customer data’

In 2008, the then-employees stole, and subsequently sold customer data to other parties. They have been ordered to pay £73,000 in fines.

Christopher Graham, Information Commissioner said:

“Those who have regular access to thousands of customer details may think that attempts to use it for personal gain will go undetected. But this case shows that there is always an audit trail and my office will do everything in its power to uncover it.”
