Cabinet office: stop providing duff links.

Correct link is:

Notice it's "Accounts" not "accounts". Also, "Web_Accessible" not "web_Accessible". Appears that the web document URL is case-sensitive. How about testing the link before putting it on a letter with "Cabinet Office" written on it.

According to The annual report 2014-15: there was ONE data breach. Search "Information Commissioner" and you will find it in the document. Or search "data loss". Cabinet office is a little shy to call it "data breach".

According to the latest 2015-16 report, no incidents of "data loss" were reported to the Information Commissioner.


I searched "Information Commissioner", "data breach", and "data loss". Nothing found. Perhaps figures are buried deep in the report calling it "data security breach".
