NHS proves that security is still not up to scratch

A computer containing the bank details of thousands of
hospital staff has been stolen from an NHS building, it has been revealed. 

The computer contains bank and personal information about
staff at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust but does not contain any patient records.
The database contained details of around 5,000 employees who work at the
trust's three sites. (source).

There is such a simple technology answer to all these
thefts. By putting RFID chips in the hardware, so that if it is moved from the
zone it is supposed to be in, it sets off the zonal alarms. Simple, cheap and
very effective. 

But perhaps this government does not want to shore up
government system, or banking systems for that matter either. It could be that
they want breach after breach, theft after theft, to wait until no-one is left
with a shred of identity that they can call their own, leaving people with only
a single option. The Government run ID Card.

Would this NuLab government be that calculated?

 

For its lack of due diligence, this Trust is an ENABLER OF ID FRAUD.
