This doesn't just raise questions about the trustworthyness and integrity of the staff bveing employed, but given the entire Child Benefit database was put on two cds, how much information might have been lying around on all the stolen laptops?
Whilst on the subject of HMRC, I just received an acknowledgement for an FoI I submitted. The end of the email says,
"HM Revenue & Customs computer systems will be monitored and communications carried on them recorded, to secure the effective operation of the system and for lawful purposes."I have to admit that caused a wry smile when I saw it.
