UK’s government to pay $2m in fines for internet privacy breaches

The UK government has paid $2 million to a British internet privacy firm for alleged breaches of the Data Protection Act.

The UK Information Commissioner’s Office said the fine, announced on Wednesday, was due to breaches committed by Optus and TalkTalk, which were investigated by the watchdog.

The regulator’s website said that Optus had committed “a number of breaches” over its relationship with the government and said it was “extremely concerned about these breaches”.

A spokesman for TalkTalk said the company had not been served with any documents or orders related to the breach, which took place between July 2015 and May 2016.

The Information Commissioner has previously said it had issued a number of enforcement actions against UK internet service providers, which includes the Optus case, in the last three years.

The two companies did not respond to requests for comment.

The fines, announced in the Commons on Wednesday morning, were part of a wider crackdown on companies suspected of breaching the Data Protections Act.

They were brought in by the government in December, which also brought in a number other measures aimed at improving consumer protection.

It is the second time in less than a year that UK governments have paid fines for alleged data privacy breaches, following a $1.3m settlement in December for the use of data from the US.

In December, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) admitted it had “a range of systems and procedures” that it was using to track customers, but did not name them.
