    I haven't checked, but I am sure Mr McCluggage has never recommended EMC products to government, otherwise this job might be seen as a reward of some type.

      McLuggage has been involved in the Cabinet Office's Digital Identity Initiative.

      EMC own RSA

      RSA are big in digital identity.
