MI6 Plans Go Missing.

Oops:


I foresee several interviews without coffee and biscuits.

Usual apologies if this has been posted elsewhere - I did do a search - and for posting a Daily Mail link.
Balfour Beatty don't exactly have the best reputation for good performance on MoD contracts. They messed up badly on a few in Devonport.

Still, document control and security oversight on the project should have been a lot more competent in this case and if done right wouldn't have allowed this to happen.

Sure, it's aDaily Mail link but it's not surprising with regards to BB
 
Phew. For a minute there I thought they believed MI6 have plans, but it's just the building.

My flabber was nearly ghasted.

Apparently they're not 'sensitive' ie classified.

More likely that a number of their employees will coincidently walk in front of a bus, underground train or choke on their morning coffee.

Genuine question: if something like that isn't, then what is? Or are we into news management, here?
The fact that they are on paper, within the building itself, and not on the internal computer network (or shared network to the outside) for the contractor ought to say something about their actual classification.

Depends on both the content within the plans and the aggregation of risk usually. Several O documents, taken together, often can be actually classified S or TS. Based on the risk posed by the entire collection read as a whole.

The classification of these plans etc will be decided by whatever MoD teams are responsible for them and their care.

The requirements for storage of the documentation doesn't change whether it's Civ Service or Contractors holding them however. I'd be surprised if they were unclassified though. Since we tend to stamp Official on most things anyway.

Crap effort at an explaination as I'm tired and sort of not using my work brain. Equally, it might actually not be a huge security impact and BB were fired due to this being a single incident in a long string of screw-ups during the project etc. Not the first time BB have been sacked by MoD.
Thank you.

Frankly, the level of security, as seen on what's evidenced so far, looks like the sort of 'plans left on a desk' situation that if it were in a film you'd dismiss it as farce.

Have a friend who works for Cisco in the UK.

He went to a secure site a few years ago. He has DV.

Was working with escort in one of the ,secure server rooms when the security officer wandered in. Full of self importance.

“And who are you? , I am the site security officer and know everybody who works, walks and visits here!”

Mate covers up his access badge with his hand and simply says.

“Well, who am I then?”

SSO has a wobbly lower lip , looks like he is going to cry and asks the escort who this stranger is.

Rumour has it that MI6 procurement has just placed a bulk order for extra large sports bags...
