Internet Villain of The Year

Internet Villain of The Year
In January I wrote that HMRC had been nominated for the award of Internet Villain of The Year.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) was nominated for the Villain of the Year award for "failing to take the protection of peoples' personal data seriously and highlighting bad practice in protecting data by losing computer disks containing confidential details of 25 million child benefit recipients."

Guess what?

Yes, that's right, they won!

My heartiest congratulations to HMRC for their well deserved award, made last Friday, of Internet Villain of The Year.

The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA), which represents internet service providers across the UK, holds an annual awards ceremony in which it names the "internet hero" and "internet villain" of the year.

This year, Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) won the villain award for managing to lose the personal details of 25 million people.

A well deserved award!

Well done HMRC!

Did they turn up to collect it?

Tax does have to be taxing.
