Transport for London are pre-empting the inevitable dopiness of their staff by issuing them with military-grade encrypted USB drives. Workers throughout TfL have been issued with the ultra secure DatAshur USB flash drives, which require a code to access the data.

Staff have the “assurance” that when they lose customer data, the information will be protected.

Let’s hope they don’t forget the password…

Quote of the Day

“I think what Cambridge Analytica has tried to sell is magic and made claims this is incredibly accurate and it tells you everything there is to tell about you. But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
