Leave.EU and Arron Banks firm fined for data breaches

The Information Commissioner has fined the Leave.EU campaign and Arron Banks’s Eldon Insurance a total of one £120,000 for “serious breaches of electronic marketing laws”. Both firms will be audited to determine how they’re using customer information, after the ICO found they had shared mailing lists without consent. Separately, Mr Banks is being investigated by the National Crime Agency and the Financial Conduct Authority. He has denied any wrongdoing.
