EDS again

Today EDS stands for Even more Data Stolen, or maybe Encrypt Data, Stupid!

See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7662604.stm

An investigation is under way into the disappearance of a computer

hard drive containing the personal details of about 100,000 of the

Armed Forces.

The information was being held by EDS, which is the Ministry of Defence’s main IT contractor.

The MoD said the portable hard drive went missing on Wednesday during a priority audit carried out by EDS….It is understood the drive was not encrypted.

As Oscar Wilde might have said “To lose one unencrypted disk may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness” or something like that..
