Commerce keeps data loss secret reports that, of those organisations that have experienced a data breach, 60 per cent did not tell their clients and half did not alert the police or authorities, according to a recent Logica survey.

The survey also found that only 30 per cent of organisations educate staff in IT security and information handling procedures on a regular basis, and less than a third have a specific security incident response team.

The research has led to renewed calls for organisations in the UK to be required by law, as in the state of California, to report information security lapses.
