HMRC employee deserves an award says Cabinet Office consultant

A former Cabinet Office consultant said that the HMRC employee who lost details of twenty five million child benefit recipients in 2 disks deserves an award. Harvey Mattinson who works as a consultant at communication Electronics Group said that one mistake committed by someone has completely changed the face of the world. The person who made such a mistake should be rewarded.

A year ago nobody had ever wondered or worried about security. Many incidents that have happened since have created an impact and made people look back and ask several fundamental questions.

Mattinson was an assistant director of assurance and standard when he was having a 6 year loan in the cabinet office. He said that people on top, which also includes ministers, do not understand whether and how the information can be protected. If they do not have leadership, then there is no starting point. He also added that they are not doing well at the moment to ensure that the data is secure.

It is hardly possible to eliminate risk and make the information 100% safe. The organisations should try to make it at least 80% safe. Companies should be given advice from the experts and let them know the right procedures to keep their data safe. Online storage and online data backup can be really helpful for keeping data safe and secured.
