MoD computer hard drive missing

A computer hard disk drive The drive was discovered to be missing during an audit An investigation is under way into the disappearance of a computer hard drive which could contain the details of about 100,000 Armed Forces personnel. The hard drive was being held by EDS, which is the Ministry of Defence's main IT contractor. The MoD said it was told the drive was missing on Wednesday following a priority audit carried out by EDS. It is thought to contain more than 1.5m pieces of information, including the details of 600,000 potential recruits. There may also be some personal information including bank and driving licence details, passport numbers, addresses, dates of birth and telephone numbers.


Another tranche of government data missing. What the hell is going on? First it was the details of 25,000 families, then many others and now this.

Won't this data be protected anyway? And it mentions 600000 potential recruits, thats alot, but if that bits true its good that more people are joining the armed forces, the British armed forces have been lacking man power somewhat.
