When will organisations pay for data breaches?

Grant Campbell has an article on the above topic published at silicon.com.
It highlights that current sanctions for breaching UK data protection law are fairly toothless, but notes that some new sanctions are apparently coming soon.
Remember even if the sanctions for breach of data protection law are toothless, it can still carry a fairly large PR risk. 
Also for financial sector entities there is a seperate risk of fines from the FSA, and the FSA has not been shy in fining organisations for data breaches.
