I wish someone could/would explain to me why this data has to be transferred by physical means on disks, tapes whatever. What is wrong with a telephone line and electronic transmission? Someone did say to me once that this wasn't a secure way but, the way things are frequently being demonstrated to us, it would be better than the current method.

€dstowe I completely agree with you. I don't understand it either.

I used to transmit data 20 years ago by Modem to a Banking System. A data disc was created and transmitted and the other end produced a Payroll. All controlled by Passwords and encryption. Nothing could get lost or stolen.

Does it really take rocket sicence to determin that the problem with moving important data that they want to keep secure be it a government department or large national company, from one of there sites to another....

That intrusting said data to a external delivery provider isn't the wisest choice at all... surley in the long run and for secruity, it might prove much cheaper and safer to actually send the boss with said data from the said department/site to the reciveing site...
