Under the mandatory requirements of the Data Handling Report published on 25 June 2008, DECC is required to give a summary report on data breaches reported to the Information Commissioner in our annual resource accounts.

We will be publishing information on personal data security breaches reported to the Information Commissioner for the 2008-09 reporting year before Parliament rises in July. The information is currently being compiled and is to be audited and verified before it is laid before Parliament.
