GDPR Potential Violation - Swann Home User Wrong Video

A BBC report is getting a lot of attention - Swann home security camera sends video to wrong user. This is certainly not the first case where such a cloud 'mixup' has occurred (e.g., Screw-up: Vivint Cloud Video), but it is the first one publicly disclosed since GDPR went into effect.

The UK ICO, responsible for upholding privacy rights, noted in the BBC report:

"Swann Communications (Europe) have made us aware of this incident and we will be making inquiries," the Information Commissioner's Office said in a statement of its own.

We will be following this closely to see what judgement / ruling / penalty is imposed upon Swann. Any with other information or questions, please let us know.
