Cyber-Ark Slams EU Breach

DEDHAM, Mass. -- Cyber-Ark says the latest data loss fiasco - involving a disk containing the personal details of around 5,000 Ministry of Justice staff going missing - highlights the need for European Union controls on data security to be implemented across all UK government departments and agencies enforcing the use of encryption of private and personal data on staff and members of the public.

"This time around it seems that staff at the National Offender Management Service, which includes a number of prison officers, have seen their data potentially leak into the public domain. Given the fact that they are dealing with criminals who could, conceivably, use this data to get back at them, this situation is totally unacceptable," said Calum Macleod, Cyber-Ark's European director.
