There are severe penalties for private organisations which lose data – not so for the public sector. The Inland Revenue & other departments have lost millions of personal details, with little or no consequences.

Why is this idea important?

Make people in the private sector personally accountable for lost information – that way they might be more careful and set down proper procedures to follow, and follow them. It's not right that a private company or individual can be fined millions of £s, when the public sector get away with carelessness and neglect scot free.
