You would think that 2 years would be enough time

To make sure that any information "leaked" by Edward Snowden had been protected so that there was no risk to agents in the field or to national security in general.

Or is there strength in the argument that this is just part of a "scare" technique perpetuated by those that would like to have the powers suggested by Theresa May's "Snoopers Charter" adopted into legislation?

Why in June 2015 is it necessary for this: British spies 'moved after Snowden files read' - BBC news 14 June 2015? Surely in 24 months any critical details have been expunged from anything that was allegedly "stolen" by Snowden. In any case I was of the opinion that all Snowden was saying was that the US and UK were spying on its citizens NOT that it had detailed information on them.

Also if the Chinese and the Russians have "decoded" the Snowden files and are now aware of what (then) was being done, things would have been changed as damage control on the part of the security services.

Now that would not make a good news story for the Daily Mail or the BBC!

Office of Personnel Management Hack June 2015

I find it strange that this is being reported in June 2015 with reference to the "Sony Hack" of December 2014.

Also, the indictment of China's involvement in this whereas it was the North Koreans last year.

I also cannot see why this continues to be a problem in 2015 - have those that are charged with the maintenance of security, especially those in government agencies, been asleep at the wheel?

Will Infosecurity Europe 2015 change the World?

It sounds more like a marketing opportunity to me!

There is a lot of money to be made in this sector what with Snowden and the FUD put out by the media.

This is good - more money for the likes of engineers like me!

The NSA gets its wings clipped

I am sure that we will all be far more unsafe as a consequence!

Rand Paul must be "Public Enemy #1" - it is a good job that he is a Republican or there would be charges of "left-wing" liberalism wanting an open-door to the "commies" and terrorists.
