The ODPA was asked by local media to comment on Sure’s recent data breach:

Emma Martins, the Bailiwick of Guernsey’s data protection commissioner said:

‘I can confirm that Sure, aware of their statutory responsibility to report a data breach, let us know about this incident earlier this month. Anyone who is affected by this should speak directly to Sure in the first instance. Incidents like this act as reminder to us all to be vigilant of risks such as identify theft that can arise after personal data is compromised. More information about how to protect yourself from identity theft, and what your rights are under our local data protection legislation can be found on our website.’
