HMRC appoints 37 data guardians

From The Register

HM Revenue and Customs has appointed 37 staff to protect information, since it lost personal records on 25 million people last November.

Each of HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC) business units has appointed a data guardian “to strengthen the management of the department’s data assets”, according to a parliamentary written answer by Jane Kennedy, financial secretary to the Treasury.

I heard a rumour that the “lost” child benefit discs never really existed – the individual who should have made them forgot to do so but claimed he’d posted them so they must have gotten lost in the post….just a rumour mind you!
