    It's actually a joke how lax some businesses are here with regards to security. They seem to think that because this is a small island, noone will do anything because everyone knows everyone.

    They seem to forget they can be attacked from the outside.

    One of my favourite quotes from that article is this:

    “Once a hard drive was no longer of use to government, the Computer Services Department would take it to the landfill and destroy it with a sledgehammer,” Mr. Swing notes in the report. “(Computer services) did not remove the platter from the casing but simply smashed up the whole case.”

    That excerpt in itself is just epic. :hahaha
