You know I think it is always interesting to read the government’s efforts in cleaning up IT security. I don’t just refer to the UK, I refer to any government that seem to be suffering a similar malaise.
It is too often that government bodies invest enormous amounts of money in IT security projects. My question is how the hell can they expect these to work when the underlying business processes are flawed? To automate these flawed business processes are IT processes, and then these need to be secured. So we need to secure the IT systems that are automating flawed business processes. Makes sense? LOL 😉
Governments around the globe are collecting more and more personal data on us, including our DNA. They are pulling this together into a centralized repository. The power of this information to somebody else (whether legitimate or not) speaks for itself!
