To have nearly 350 stolen or lost in the last 4 years is incompetence on a grand scale.

The report does not give any details of how these computers went missing. That might make interesting reading. If laptop computers can go astray so easily and frequently it’s no wonder CDs (again, with unencrypted personal data) suffer the same fate.
Is it just the MoD or are other government departments just as careless?
National data bases? Not if I could stop them.
