Security flaws halt ContactPoint

A day after the publication of our report on the dangers of large personal databases, the Department for Children, Schools and Families has paused work on the ContactPoint register of England's 11m children due to security fears. This action speaks rather louder than the government's spin against the report.

Ross Clark also has a nice article in today's Mail:
Today's database-builders don't seem to understand that the more the authorities watch us, count us and photograph us, the less they actually see.

Further coverage in the International Herald Tribune, Times and Guardian.
