Data on the loss of prisoner records are available from September 2008 following the introduction of a new data loss reporting procedure which covers prisoner files that go missing. The increase in reporting of losses since the start of 2011-12 coincides with the programme of work that has been carried out to promote awareness of Information Assurance across NOMS and to improve reporting procedures.
