Here's where you can report a personal data breach to the ICO. This may include, for example, the loss of a USB stick, data being destroyed or sent to the wrong address, the theft of a laptop or hacking.

To report a breach, call our helpline. Our normal opening hours are Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. However, we are closed after 1pm on Wednesdays for staff training. We will record the breach and give you advice about what to do next. For more about how we use your information, see our privacy notice
