Security and the Information Sharing Index

...two words that won't go together it seems. Here's more on what the experts think about it:

"More worryingly, we are due to see the UK’s Integrated Children’s System go live – a data system containing details of all of the nation’s vulnerable children. This is madness of course – an incredible resource for child abusers the length of the country. Two questions spring to mind: will the first big story be of an external hack into the system or an authorised user abusing their access rights to find their targets? And, who will be hung out to dry: the poor soul responsible for specifying the system’s security, or the politician who thought this was a good idea in the first place?"
