The BBC has reported that four Britons have been sentenced for their role in a criminal network stealing personal data.

I had a very interesting chat with ex-confidence trickster Frank Abagnale at the RSA Security Conference Europe a couple of months ago. He told me that stolen personal data is worth more the longer you keep hold of it, because the trail of the theft gets colder, and so more difficult to link to the thief.

I wonder whose hands the 25 million personal details HMRC lost are in now?
