With the impending change in prime minister, we can hope that the government will start taking information security more seriously. A good start might be to reinstate the National High Tech Crime Unit, which was needlessly subsumed into the controversial Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).

But with rising inflation and poor showings in the opinion polls, it probably won't top Mr Brown's to-do list (should he be the new PM).

Frank Murphy, Kettering.
