ID card database destroyed

Thursday, 10 Feb 2011

The Home Office has announced that the ID card database has been destroyed.

Shredded identity database 

A database built to hold the fingerprints and personal details of millions of ID card holders has today been publicly destroyed.

Around 500 hard disk drives and 100 back up tapes containing the details of 15,000 holders have been magnetically wiped and shredded.

They will soon be incinerated in an environmentally friendly waste-for-energy process.

This signals an end to the National Identity Register which was built to hold the details of people who applied for an ID card.

The scheme was scrapped by the coalition government and the cards ceased to be valid legal documents on 22 January.

Database destruction

Home Office minister Damian Green helped shred the last of the hard disk drives at an Essex industrial site today.

‘Laying ID cards to rest demonstrates the government’s commitment to scale back the power of the state and restore civil liberties,’ he said.

‘This is about people having trust in the government to know when it is necessary and appropriate for the state to hold and use personal data, and it is about the government placing their trust in the common-sense and responsible attitude of people.

‘This is just the first step in the process of restoring and maintaining our freedoms.’

Well-being and Resilience

Building high-performing cultures through well-being
 Sustain a future-fit workforce

With 1/5 of organisations having increased their well-being investment this year, organisations are finding that prevention is better than cure when it comes to employee health and well-being.

Supporting individuals to achieve optimum mental and physical well-being helps build resilience in a tough business climate. A resilient workforce can adapt to change and is better equipped to tackle challenges head on.

The CIPD Well-being and Resilience Conference, 2 February will deliver expert insight on this much talked-about topic.
