A report on the breach released today blames staff at the ministry, and says they should have told senior managers.
But senior management would have known about the security check.
Why would the senior manager NOT ask, hey what did the security report say.
Systems seemed to be slack.
Serious questions have now been raised because the Pin for each card is the last four digits of the card number, which is imprinted on the front.
Do think there a a case for defamation?
Yes BUT those numbers are for 2010 to 2014, pre the problem.
Here is another interesting fact in the mix
The MSD are spending >$1billion on IT between 2010 and 2014
BUT what about this from a stuff report
On Thursday, Bailey's Linkdin profile had been checked out by an adviser in Social Development Minister Paula Bennett's office, Ng said.
The spies were told by the cops that DotCom was 'legal'
The spies got an in house opinion that he was fair game, not legal. Game on.
Then they got a suppression order from Bill while the boss was away cause they screwed had up.
This was not a 'brain fade' by one person as Key tries to spin it.
It was just another legal opinion as he tries to spin the Winkelman judgement. (except that was a judge!)
BUT isn't this signing an illegal warrant, as Dotcom was a resident.
How does that help in retrospect?
AND surely Bill might have said to Key, by the way I had to sign an idemniity that could bugger the surplus in 2015
