Lessons from Hackgate: 1) delete all e-mails no longer required

The unravelling phonehacking sage may prove to be an even better stimulus to basic “good practice” in information security and data protection than the lost HMRC discs. I am not sure that e-mails count as “personal data” but the fifth principle defnitely applies. Delete them (and your mobile phone messages) as soon as no longer required. It also destroys the evidence of your malpractice.
