ICO warns of more 'datagate' breaches

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Richard Thomas, giving evidence to the House of Commons Justice Committee yesterday, warned that more government data could have gone missing.

Thomas said that as a result of the HMRC scandal, "several departments have come to see us on a confessional basis, but none on anything like the scale of the HMRC loss".

He said that Robert Hannigan, head of intelligence, security and resilience in the Cabinet Office, was continuing to review data handling by all government departments.

In other news, the Telegraph warns that if the missing child benefit discs did end up in the wrong hands then criminals could find details of people on witness protection programmes on the discs. The paper says the discs include the real and changed names of up to 350 people who have changed their identities after giving evidence against criminals.
