Gordon Brown admits government cannot be trusted with our data
Mr Brown appeared to accept data loss in future was inevitable.
“It is important to recognise we cannot promise that every single item of information will always be safe because mistakes are made by human beings. Mistakes are made in the transportation, if you like in the communication, of information.”
Also in the input of it, the storage of it, the communication of it, and errors in the systems that process and store it, etc.
So storing as little data as possible would be best, wouldn’t you say?
