Funnily enough

We’d just been having a discussion in the comments section of this, when I noticed this:

Children’s social workers will receive a £13 million boost to help pay for Information and Communication Technology (ICT), through funding announced today by Children’s Minister Parmjit Dhanda…this capital grant will help employers invest in the latest mobile ICT, including laptops and Personal Digital Assistants.

Let’s hope they get some grown-up security advice.

After looking at Dizzythinks, it seems that the DWP could do with that, too:

According to a very short response from the DWP Minister, Anne McGuire, in the last 12 months, the Independent Living Fund, the agency that provides help to the severly disabled has had one backup tape of personal data stolen.
