Met police commissioner: Fraud victims should not be refunded by banks


I'll wager a bet...

that more of my personal data floats around the interwebs through the security incompetence (or often sheer we-cant-be-botheredness) of banks, telecoms companies, online retailers... you name it, than through my own incompetence. I've had a few talks to security people in banks and the results have consistently been disappointing. I never had the feeling that security enjoys the priority it should have.

So before BHH lambast the general public he should perhaps look into the way supposed "professionals" go about their IT security.
