Data breaches

Report a data breach

It is vitally important that you report all data security breaches by contacting SID on 0300 555 0444 as soon as they are discovered. This is to ensure urgent steps can be taken to contain and manage the breach. Please note that even if the breach you are reporting is technical in nature it should be reported to the SID team and not the IT Helpdesk.
