Sensitive to data

I posted a blog suggesting that people in government use official email IDs rather than private ones. E.g., 65% of email IDs used by UIDAI top officials are private. I am glad to see that government could ban e-mail services such as Gmail and Yahoo for official communications by December this year in a move to safeguard its critical and sensitive data. If there is a will they could. ‘Could’ and ‘will’ are distinctly different terms.

Irrespective of how hot the mail IDs are, I hope that the political bosses and their babus become less haughty and respond to requests and feedback. My mails are mostly ignored. In rare cases when they respond, it is to deny the reality even in the face of irrefutable evidences and and claim that ‘all is well.’

Government officers mock the system by not respecting the rules, standards, and guidelines set by the government. Yet another rule may also be ignored inviting inaction.
