COUNCIL hard disks that may not have been properly wiped could lead to penalties over data law breaches.

Portsmouth City Council could face hefty fines under General Data Protection Regulations after it was discovered that for the past two years contractors have not been obliged to erase data when removing old computer drives.

Auditors revealed the discrepancy in a report that was discussed at today's governance and standards committee. They were unsure if any drives were affected due to council records that were deemed 'not sufficient'.
