9 sacked over national ID scheme breaches

From Computer Weekly
"Nine staff have been sacked from their local authority jobs for snooping on personal records of celebrities and personal acquaintances held on the core database of the government's National Identity Scheme."
If you have a large pot of personal data which lots of users have access to as a routine part of their jobs it will get misused. Fact of life.
