which will determine whether further security measures are required."
Memo to St Albans City and District Council suggestions ref: the way forward:-
1. Save yourselves the cost of the investigation - further security measures are required.
2. Under no circumstances should a council laptop ever contain sensitive personal data. Laptops are designed to be carried around - on a train or bus,in a car, in a pannier on a motorbike, in a shoulder bag or backpack. It doesn't take an Einstein to work out that laptops are likely to be lost or stolen; they can simply be left in a train or bus by mistake, or they can be picked up by a passing opportunist thief. No council employee should ever be allowed to leave the premises with a laptop containing voters' personal data.
