Morrisons loses appeal against data breach liability ruling

The supermarket chain has lost its appeal against a High Court ruling that found it liable for a data leak by a former employee, underlining the importance of managing insider threats.

The Court of Appeal ruled that Morrisons must pay compensation to 100,000 employees who were victims of the data breach by disgruntled employee Andrew Skelton, a senior internal auditor at the supermarket’s headquarters who deliberately leaked payroll information. The Appeal Court’s ruling underlines the fact that organisations are ultimately responsible for the personal data they hold.

Morrisons is to appeal to the Supreme Court.
