I don’t know how they do it but discredited snooping company Phorm has managed to stave off going under. It bemuses me how people can…
If the news that the Information Commissioner’s Office has levied its first fines is supposed to scare people and organisations into being ethical, compliant with the law, using common sense and following sensible IT security precautions then I’m afraid the ICO is deluded.
Remember that the ICO is complicit in the mass privacy breaches by BT and Phorm in their secret and illegal testing. The ICO did nothing to prevent this from happening. The ICO now says that it doesn’t need technical expertise for its role. I say that is bulls**t. The ICO needs technical expertise as much as it needs legal expertise. Its abysmal perphormance in the Phorm phiasco proves that it does.
Like that fart you work your cheeks to get out silently so your grandparents don’t chastise you for breaking wind, the Home Office have snook out a consultation paper on amendments to the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA).
You know, the one BT and Phorm violated multiple times in their secret and illegal tests.
You know, the one the Metropolitan Police were too thick to understand.
You know, the one the Crown Prosecution Service don’t seem to comprehend either. How many days is it now? 765?
Deadline for consultation responses is 7th December. It wasn’t put on the public consultations page until today.
