Dear Sirs,

There have been a number of high profile cases in the Public Sector recently of data either being lost i.e. Laptops and memory sticks left in public places or malicious programs extracting contact information i.e. Personal details. I would like to know what security measures you have in place (or intend to put in place) to prevent such occurrences and who is responsible for IT Security (Name and Title)?

Many thanks for you assistance in this matter.

Yours faithfully,

David Blades
