Data Loss, again. This time the MoD has now lost the details of around 1.5 million people, including 600,00 potential recruits. Some of the records will be generic, but other records include date of birth, bank records, address, etc.
This latest loss occurred because…the MoD contractor, EDS, lost the data. Who have also lost data previously as well
Which sounds very familiar to the Home Office data loss a few weeks ago, when PA Consulting lost the data.
But the real concern should not be what is lost, but what is stolen.
Currently the government has no way of knowing what is “stolen”, which is far worse.
