The US government's 11-page document on how to get various US government agencies to prevent future leaks has been leaked to MSNBC.

It doesn't get any more ironic than that.

The issue isn't one that is easily solved. People need to be trusted with information in order to carry out their duties. If those people decide to leak information what can be done about it? There are many technical avenues that can be explored to reduce the risk but it can't be eliminated. More security equals less availability and I can tell you from personal experience in the government, the people making the decisions don't like that. Efficiency and bottom line is their main concern. So it will take a complete culture change in the way we look at technology in business before any headway can be made.

It's slowly evolving but in the meantime the state of information security is frightening. Things that were exposed on wikileaks are a drop in the bucket and most likely all leaked by humans. This has always been an issue but with technology it has become so much easier. Thirty years ago if you wanted to expose that much information it would have to be physically collected. Reams of paper that would have to be sorted through and then disclosed to some media source. Now it's a few megabytes that can be posted all over the web in seconds.

More scary is what's being gathered by foreign nations without our knowledge. There is a lot of discussion currently going around about the newly developed Chinese stealth fighter. Google "Advanced Persistent Threat". It's creepy stuff that is much more prevalent than most think.

"Nothing to hide, nothing to fear" is the mantra Britain's surveillance society is trying to drum into the sheeple. I'm all for gvt. leaking like a sieve, it makes it more difficult for them to lie and cheat. Most of what's leaking is stuff we should know about anyway.

Incidentally, Tony B'liar used the excuse of possible leaks to unilaterally decide to take GB into Gulf War 2 instead of discussing it properly with the elected members of the Cabinet.

Openness is the mother of ethical decisionmaking.
