Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

UK Identity Crisis Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has lost two further CDs containing private information.

Staff at HMRC have told police that another two CDs are missing, according to the Times. They contain information on thousands of people and were sent to offices in London, but have yet to appear.

We called the Met, but it refused to comment beyond saying officers were investigating the original loss of data and searching for the missing discs.

Last month, HMRC lost information on 15,000 people after another CD was lost. The disc was sent from HMRC's Newcastle office to Standard Life's office in Edinburgh, but never arrived.
