Three military laptops with personal details of up to 600,000 people have
been lost, Defence Secretary Des Browne admitted today.
The Cabinet minister, who is understood to be furious at the data security
breaches, told MPs this afternoon that the extent of the blunders was
wider than previously revealed.
They are likely to lead to disciplinary action.
With the Ministry of Defence already under fire over the loss of one
computer on 9 January, Mr Browne ordered an independent inquiry into
military data security.
The laptop stolen in Birmingham this month - from the car of a Royal Navy
officer who was involved in recruitment - contained details of 600,000
people including passport numbers, insurance numbers, family background
information and medical details.
The MoD is writing to about 3,500 people whose bank details were included
on the database.
