I work at a large IT company and there is so much fragmentation and inconsistent security policies that seem to come from knee-jerk decisions by middle managers that have been chewed up because of specific security exposures.

This ends up being difficult for an end user as you end up jumping through extra loops for a service that less important that the one you normally use.

Security personnel, don't listen to reason, they just perform their goosestep and salute to the leader.
If I find a loophole to make my life easier I will use it.

Companies need to realize security needs to be thought out and need to be integrated properly, not a strap on what I see used by large companies.

That's just politics. Most politicians do it ... smarter ones usually don't get caught and the more affluent the country the more sophisticated the corruption.

The U.S. Barely makes the top 20 in the Transparency International rankings list (http://www.transparency.org/cpi2013/results).
Turkey is 50th

Sorry, the anti-abortion issue is very political and this is a heavy handed fine on a charity.

I agree this organization is negligent, but if this ruling is setting a precedent then it should be scrutinized.
At least, the ICO should demonstrate the fine is consistent with other cases.
