Data Security Failings at DWP?

According to a Press Association report, the Department for Work and Pensions has allegedly been breaching its own security policies:

Government staff have been sending out highly sensitive data in packages that include the passwords.

The errors at the Department for Work and Pensions “defeat the purpose” of tighter security rules brought in after last year’s data loss scandals, according to an internal email.

The startling admission comes in a message circulated to staff by one of the DWP’s security advisers, and will provoke fresh doubts over Government systems.
