    Personally, I'm interested to see a statement. But that's more from a professional point of view than a personal one.

    If @nephilim is anything like me it is more of a technical curiosity thing than a 'Oh Crap wheres my data gone!' type of thing. We are all technical people here, I like many others use a different password here than anywhere else and other information about me is available on the likes of Facebook and Twitter.

    I don't know about you, but since EduGeek isn't just for people who worked in education (at least not any more), I would put it in the same group as other IT forums like Ars Technica etc. which are definitely much bigger.

    I would have put Ars Technica in the catagory of IT News first then community support second....edugeek is the other way round

    Indeed.

    Plus, I'm counting it as CPD. [Depending on how much detail it goes into.]

    I would be interested in case there is anything I could learn form it for the forums I run. Its ok saying 'make sure they are up to date' but some times it can be a setting that you have just forgotten about that gives a security hole. Not after a 'blow by blow' but anything that could help make my forums more secure.

    There is some good guidance from the ICO about what to do in a data breach, and IIRC there is information in the Diploma / Certificate in School Business Management. I'll try to collate a group of links together over the next few days and grab a couple of examples. Every issue is slightly different but there are some common themes. I'll prod that Mr Newton too as I know he has info as well

    Obligatory "Ars has a front page?".

    No, just that Ars covers lots of areas in terms of news (from gaming to security to phones to software)...we do not cover all of that material
