NHS: Data Loss

According to a recent report the NHS data losses reported are just a fraction of the real issue.

It is now reported that “Four out of Five NHS trusts have lost patient data or suffered a data security breach since the beginning of last year.

There have been more than NHS 1300 data loss incidents since Jan 2007.Source

Virtually all of these data losses could be stopped , even if USB drives are being used.

What is far more concerning is if this: If millions of records are being lost, how many are being stolen?
