It is most likely we will be informed in one of three ways; by notification from third-party services, recognised malicious activity or something physical such as the theft or loss of device. Depending on the circumstances, as a data controller, we will determine the risk of the breach adversely affecting the individuals’ rights and freedoms and follow the ICO’s guidance as to whether or not they or any other party need to be informed.
