A good day to trumpet bad news

The Register website, which reports on all things IT, says that Barnet council made the best of a bad PR job in the way it handled the news about its loss of 9,000 children's data.

The council could have slunk about till they were outed by the Information Commissioner's Office, but instead they managed the fallout by going public themselves and by judicious use of their website.

Adept at heading off deserved criticism - it's probably not the first thing that the council would like to be famous for. You can read the Register article here.
