Reminder: Contactpoint EDM

The first of yesterday’s data debacles:

Hundreds of documents containing sensitive personal data have been found dumped on a roundabout in Devon. Details of benefit claims, passport photocopies and mortgage payments were included in the confidential data.

Followed by:

The personal details of 600,000 people who had expressed an interest in joining the armed forces have gone missing after a laptop belonging to a Royal Navy officer was stolen, the Ministry of Defence said last night.

In another breach of government security, police are investigating the theft of the laptop, which was stolen from a vehicle in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham this month and contained, among other information, passport, and national insurance numbers and bank details.

It’s time to give your MP a nudge about signing up to the Contactpoint Early Day Motion.
