Both are wrong. All good fresh scone needs is butter. If it's not a good fresh scone, feel free to put lipstick on the pig!

Morrisons tells top court it's not liable for staffer who nicked payroll data of 100,000 employees

Re: Depends if decent efforts at data security made by Morrisons

I'm with you on this. The risk of people doing bad things is part of any decent organisations concerns and steps should be put in place to mitigate it. As always there's a trade off between oppression/bureaucracy/trust etc. But locking down USB ports and monitoring for excessive data transfers seems basic to me.

Misuse of Use Cases

I wouldn't dream of giving a developer either of the two examples given to work from. I would expect the use case to evolve from type 1 to type 2 - but for the testers , not the developers. the developers would be working with sequence diagrams, class models and possibly state diagrams specifying with much greater precision the required functionality. The type 1 use case remains though, as a non-technical view of how the system works.
