Submission + - 2012 Olympics- event security sold off to Visa

Lurker McLurker writes: "While speaking at Infosecurity Europe, a gathering of information security professionals, UK Member of Parliament Derek Wyatt revealed something extraordinary about security for the 2012 London Olympic Games. Apparently, only major sponsors of the games will be allowed to provide security . That's right, such irrelevancies such as having the best system for the job are to be ignored. Companies can buy the right to provide security systems.

Protection from the terrorists will be provided by Visa, apparently."
