More on the missing discs
Further to my piece The missing discs, dated November 26th, here is a bit from an Observer article dated December 2nd
…two discs were found at the home of a former contractor to the Department for Work and Pensions.You can read the full article here.
This is appalling. Firstly, why employ contractors? With an organisation like Work & Pensions, dealing with sensitive data, you need to have the data under control at all times. This means doing all computing in-house. I suppose they outsourced the stuff to save money but look where it's getting us! It's the same with the HMRC data that disappeared; it's all to do with making false economies. Like employing Blackwater in Iraq. Aaaargh! Will these bloody people never learn? Morons!
