MoD investigation into data breach involving 250 Afghan interpreters’ details


share close

The Ministry of Defence has launched an investigation into a data breach that involves the details of 250 Afghan interpreters.

It is not yet clear if the interpreters concerned are in the UK or Afghanistan after dozens were left behind following the withdrawal of UK troops from Afghanistan last month.

An MoD spokeswoman told Sky News 250 email addresses are part of the beach but it is not yet known if they contain the names or photos of the translators involved.

She said: “An investigation has been launched into a data breach of information from the Afghan Relocations Assistance Policy team.

“We apologise to everyone impacted by this breach and are working hard to ensure it does not happen again.

“The Ministry of Defence takes its information and data handling responsibilities very seriously.”

It is understood that those impacted by the breach have been told and are being offered help in managing any potential risks.
