Data lost again

Court case data CDs lost in post (BBC News, Wednesday, 23 January 2008)

People never learn.

Should I ask whether the data on the lost CDs was encrypted this time? I can guess the answer.

What's wrong with SSL and PGP anyway? Ah, of course, how stupid of me: the Internet is a security risk, and Royal Mail isn't.
