Law Student Claims Unfair Discipline After He Reported a Data Breach

Published by Slashdot on Mon, 03 Jun 2024

An anonymous Slashdot reader shared this report from Computer Weekly:A former student at the Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) says he was hauled over the coals by the college for having acted responsibly and "with integrity" in reporting a security blunder that left sensitive information about students exposed. Bartek Wytrzyszczewski faced misconduct proceedings after alerting the college to a data breach exposing sensitive information on hundreds of past and present ICCA students... The ICCA, which offers training to future barristers, informed data protection regulator the Information Commissioner's Office of a breach "experienced" in August 2023 after Wytrzyszczewski alerted the college that sensitive files on nearly 800 students were accessible to other college users via the ICCA's web portal. The breach saw personal data such as email addresses, phone numbers and academic informationincluding exam marks and previous institutions attendedaccessible to students at the college. Students using the ICCA's web portal were also able to access ID photos, as well as student ID numbers and sensitive data, such as health records, visa status and information as to whether they were pregnant or had children...After the college secured a written undertaking from Wytrzyszczewski not to disclose any of the information he had discovered, it launched misconduct proceedings against him. He had stumbled across the files in error, he said, and viewed a significant number to ensure he could report their contents with accuracy. "The panel cleared Wytrzyszczewski and found it had no jurisdiction to hear the matter," according to the article. But he "said the experience caused him to unenroll from the ICCA's course and restart his training at another provider."Read more of this story at Slashdot.
