Excellent, I have to write EIRs (Environmental version of FOI) I think I'll use that as a template for future requests.

Anyone else think it's a bit weird that the HMRC don't have security in place to stop them posting unencrypted CDs full of private data, but do have security in place to stop anyone reading what you're supposed to do if it's stolen :?

Small point, but I believe it wasn't HMRC that lost them discs!! They were sent by the INTERNAL mail system, which by a strange turn of fate, is run by a private company I.E. Capita!! its them that balsed up, not HMRC :police:

The fact the discs were lost is to my mind secondary, the real issue is that an unpriviledged user had/has access to private data which is outside of their remit,  and that they are requested to put this on CDs unencrypted and to post it via any mechanism in that state.

Whomever is responsible for that has no idea about information security, VPNs, networking or how pish the postal system in this country is.

Note: not the fault of anyone in HMRC or any of it's contractors as individuals but a jolly good indicator of how messed up the entire system is.

You are so right Datalas, I feel a bit of a rant coming on!

As you say, it highlights how messed up it all is these days :x The government have been steadily de-valueing all of their departments, closing places down, keeping the pay rises down, privatising departments, they have even gone into "hot desking" in some places. Thats where you have say 15 employes for every 12 desks!! nothing personal allowed on them and grab any desk you can!! how can that be good working practice? and then they look to blame someone when it all goes wrong!!  :doh:

And what REALLY bugs me, is it was less than 30% of the voting public that put them in power!!! how can that be right??

Bah!!! I'm off!
