Another UK Data Breach

In yet another data loss scandal in the UK, three million drivers’ records have been lost. Transport secretary Ruth Kelly has known since May that a hard disk drive had gone missing from a secure facility in Iowa City, Iowa.

As a preventative measure, Kelly said the department is now looking at utilizing electronic data transfer. However, many would argue that data breaches are more imminent with electronic data. If the UK government and transport department decide to use electronic means to deliver sensitive data, they both should seriously evaluate methods of securing those processes.
