A massive multimillion pound undercover drugs operation by MI6 had to be scrapped after one of it's agents lost a USB memory stick containing vital information on a bus.
The incident happened in Columbia back in 2006 but news of it was only released at the weekend. The data loss put dozens of agents and informants lives at risk and people had to be relocated in case the information got into the wrong hands.The Serious Organised Crime Agency has stated that since the breach in security MI6 have tightened it's procedures and improved. A spokesperson for the Serious Crime Agency said since the government required them to start reporting on data losses there has not been a single breach of personal or sensitive data.
A survey showed that less than 50% of the UK public and private sector organisations use any form of data encryption.
