TRB 2019-4318.

The defendant, a privacy officer at a bank, repeatedly forwarded confidential information of customers to his private email address. This resulted in the confidential information ending up on a Google server.

By doing so, the defendant shared confidential information with a third party. This constitutes a breach of the banker's oath. The defendant accepted a settlement and a €500 fine. His name was added to the foundation's registery, which is accessible by banks.
