The ICO only uses the stick on outfits which are highly unlikely to lawyer up and challenge them.

The last time they misjudged that, the fines got poleaxed by a district court judge. They should have appealed it but didn't.

The chances of Talk Talk being issued with maximum fines (or any fines) are inversely related to their legal budget.
