The Daily Star reports that Manchester Police lost an Unencrypted & not Password-protected USB memory stick containing top secret anti-terror documents in the street outside their own Police Station.
The memory stick contained a "Manual on Guidance of Keeping the Peace", more than 2,000 pages of highly-sensitive and confidential information, with sections on countering the threat of terrorism including strategies for acid and petrol bomb attacks, blast
control training, the use of batons and shields, the use and understanding of firearms as well as water cannons and CS gas.
The memory stick was clearly emblazoned with the Greater Manchester Police badge and the initials GMP POTU, standing for Greater Manchester Police Public Order Training Unit.
Since there was also personal data on the drive about individual Police Officers, I hope the Information Commissioner make it his business to remonstrate with them.
