Passport Canada’s Lax Security

Passport Canada is scrambling to reassure Canadian citizens that a recent data breach has been rectified. The breach occurred on the Passport Canada website where an applicant could simply change a few letters in their name in the URL field and access another individual’s application. This is yet another example on how relaxed security measures could result in catastrophic results. When will businesses and governments learn that security should be a priority? You would hope that the recent events in the UK will change attitudes towards strong security implementation.
