More data loss!

More sensitive data loss (this time, on a unencrypted memory stick!) - Beeb has reported:

"Details of 84,000 prisoners in England and Wales were lost by private firm PA Consulting. The Home Office said a full investigation was being conducted.

The information commissioner's office described it as "deeply worrying".

PA Consulting has searched its premises and looked at CCTV recordings in an attempt to recover the missing memory stick - a commonly used portable storage device for computer files. It is not clear how it came to be lost."

Probably worth reading Ubisurv's comments on this.
