Businesses could be fined 10% of revenues for data protection breaches

This development is a step in the right direction in my opinion. Sure, it comes with a heavy price, but in this day and age, the penalties for not taking the appropriate steps to protect data should be commensurate with the size and extent of the breach.

This is good news for security professionals in the consulting realm. However, for those already employed by UK companies suddenly facing this law, their headaches just got a long stronger.
