Olympic Games Breach Disclosure Window Opens

The London Olympic 2012 Games has finally arrived, and will dominate media headlines around the world for the next couple of weeks. This is a great time for sports fans, but also a great time for firms to disclose data breaches. Yes, I know I'm being really cynical but let's see what breach notifications occur during this festival of sport. 
As I write this post Google have just announced they are in breach of a UK Privacy agreement - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19014206, admitting to have not deleted personal data gathered as part of their Street View surveys. This personal data should of have been wiped over 18 months ago! But back to my main point with this post today, as with this awkward privacy announcement, the media coverage of it will be swiftly buried within the media's frenzy of Olympic headlines, hence why companies PR teams choose specific dates to publicly announce their data breaches.
