ID TheftThat was the title of a PAG presentation in January 2008. At the time we were concerned about organisations' ability to secure all the electronic data about individuals that was being amassed. Risks, actual and potential, that our data may be misused or mislaid were discussed. Our report of the meeting went on to say: 

'Recognising that it would be impractical to seek to hold back advances in information technology, the meeting called for the Government to establish a straightforward and readily enforceable regime that promptly penalised inadequate data protection or misuse. Such a regime should ensure that all government agencies and commercial organisations requiring clients to reveal private personal data should be deterred from allowing it to be used for purposes not originally agreed or failing to safeguard it from falling into unauthorised hands.

The Third (Final) Report of the Tynwald Select Committee on KSFIOM (the “Committee”), which is now available for consultation is tabled for presentation at next week's sitting of Tynwald.

While the Report essentially concerns the events following the collapse of KSFIOM on 8 October 2008 and the credibility of the Depositors Compensation Scheme, it also reiterates the conclusions of the First (Interim) Reporton the events leading up to the collapse of KSFIOM.

In its Strategic Plan 2007-2011 the Government made a commitment to "provide to the public right of access to government information".
When Chief Minister Brown took the Freedom of Information Bill 2011 to a first reading in the final sitting of Keys (28.06.11) he felt he had honoured the promise made 4 years earlier.

The Manx public is not fooled by this piece of political chicanery.
