Does anybody else recon that the missing Mod computer scare will slow down everyones application process while they try to find it? And if they do have anyones data then what do you recon the Mod are going to do about it?
Im just interested what other people think.

Don't think it should cause much of a problem, it's happened before and this was strictly navy info which was lost. This could be from any or all of the branches.

It's extremely unlikely it will have any effect on anyone's application.

If it's of any consolation, it's quite possible my details could be on that disk also, but unlike the prisoners, whose details were "lost" a little while back, I'm not seeking damages.

Serves the Government right for using a *text deleted**text deleted* company like EDS!
What sort of company doesn't encrypt sensitive data!?

When I worked in e-Commerce, banks set out standards that we had to adhere to to store credit card information. If those standards are not met, they would not accept our transactions. Seems to me a Government agency needs to set out Standards for data security... Oh, hold on that's what GCHQ (CESG) are meant to do.
