British Cabinet Member has Computer Stolen

UK minister's computer stolen in latest government data breach

LONDON: British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's spokesman Michael Ellam says a Cabinet minister's computer has been stolen from her office in a new data mishap.

Communities Secretary Hazel Blears had her desktop computer stolen from an office in northern England on Saturday. The computer contained government data.

Ellam says Brown told ministers to take more care with data at a Tuesday Cabinet meeting.

Two sets of confidential documents have been left on trains by security officials in the last week. One set of papers included secret briefings on Iraq and al-Qaida.

Will the British government wake up and take notice?
Very, Very, Doubtful!
