RAF data loss update

Further to yesterday’s post about data loss, it turns out (according to the Mail Online) that the data was stored not on CDs which went missing, but on hard drives which were stolen from a cupboard in a supposedly secure area.

A logging system would not have prevented that, of course, but adherence to a business process which stipulated that data storage media should be locked away, by whom and where, probably would have.

I wonder if they even have a process.

The Mail Online tells us:

The hard drive was not encrypted because it was never meant to leave a secure area of RAF Innsworth near Gloucester.

All I can say to that is: DOH!
