Security Issues

Security Issues
There is an interesting comment that has been posted on Youtube, relating to outsourced processing activities allegedly being carried out by Fujitsu in Liverpool for HMRC.

The post, if it is true, alleges some pretty serious security shortcomings wrt the processing of tax credit forms.

Here is the comment in full, I have not corrected the grammar or spelling:

"It isnt HMRC but Fujitsu Services currently have the contract for supplying IT services to HMRC that is at fault. In netherton(liverpool) where they process tax credit forms & CIS forms the managers there employ users to key this data into their system without even security checks & people who claim newtax credit have their details sent over email by IT staff without any security enabled, plus peoples details are recorded on CD-roms and left lying around in unlocked cupboards

Also there was newtax claiments details internally copied by users but breaches like this are never highlighted to HMRC and covered up! HMRC should be made aware of the sloppy practices of Fujitsu services and if they renew the contract with them, it will cost them dearly both in money and security.
Be aware Mr Gordan Brown

Does anyone have any more information about this?

Please get in touch if you do.


Tax does have to be taxing.
