The Wheels Come Off II

I would like to advise you that, following on from my earlier article today, another of Nanny's departments has succeeded in losing some data discs.

Nanny's department responsible for courts, prisons, probation, criminal law and sentencing - HM Inspectorate of Court Administration (HMICA)- has lost 4 CDs in December.

HMICA won't confirm or deny — due to an "ongoing investigation" — reports that the missing data included sensitive information, such as the names and addresses of alleged victims of crime and witnesses.

An investigation is being undertaken by HMICA into the cock up.

The four CDs containing data were lost in the post on 15 December, in transit between the Ministry of Justice and another party. It is unclear as to whether they were encrypted.

Great stuff!

Well done Nanny!


  1. What a cowboy outfit....Yeeehawwwwwwwwww!!

  2. "It is unclear as to whether they were encrypted."

    In other words, like the other losses, no encryption - unless you think that because it is not readable by humans without machine interpretation it is "encrypted". Or maybe it is EBCDIC instead of ASCII, or whatever.

  3. So good of nanny to provide examples of what not to do so we can all enthusiastically take part in the European Data Protection Day on Monday.
