Nine Local Authority workers sacked for illegally accessing records on Govt customer Information System database

Following a Freedom of Information request by Computer Weekly it has been revealed that nine local government employees have been sacked for illegally accessing personal details held on the Customer Information System (CIS) database, part of a linked-up network of systems which constitute the government's planned national identity database.

There are around 200,000 people with access to this database, one may wonder how proper checks and measures can really be implemented. Of course the nine mentioned are the ones that got caught.
