“The National Body Repair Association (NBRA) is pleased to see that the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has executed further search warrants at properties in Macclesfield and Droylsden, as part of an ongoing investigation into nuisance calls related to data theft from car body repair shops”, comments Jason Moseley, NBRA Director.
The search warrant is part of an investigation by the ICO prompted by concerns raised by the NBRA and its members.
Moseley continues, “Membership of our association promotes good data diligence and practices. This is something we have been working closely with the ICO for 12 months now, and we fully support that further actions are being taken against this criminal activity.”
