According to the ICO Guide to Encryption; "In recent years there have been numerous incidents where personal data has been stolen, lost or subject to unauthorised access...The Information Commissioner has formed the view that in future, where such losses occur and where encryption software has not been used to protect the data, regulatory action may be pursued."
