"Sorry Sophos, but why is it "his tools"? Why could it not be "her tools"? Or "their tools" to be more gender-neutral?"

You're right, I'd not noticed that. There's a large movement towards descriptive or training materials to refer to "her", "she" for a generic person, etc, but whenever it's something bad happening, it's almost always back to "him", "his" etc.
