Mandatory reporting means companies know that they are breached they will be found out, so they make at least token efforts to secure our data.
I may be being optimistic.

'Highly evolved means frequent deployments, very short lead time for application changes ("less than an hour"), quick response to failures ("less than an hour")'
If the application I was using before lunch might not be the same as the application I am using after lunch then I'm not going to want to use that application.
If the token for nefarious purposes, it could well do more than 50k of damages, but earn less than 50k for the attacker, so generosity seems smart here.
I'm not sure about "give us a call when you finish studying" - if they said that then why is Zanellato cunningly slipping bits of their CV into interviews?
"A methodology can never be agile because a methodology is a set of rules that you must follow"
It's a methodology about how to do agile developing, not a methodology that is necessarily agile itself. In the same way that most hat salesmen aren't hats.
It does seem to add to the admin though, I can't argue with that.
Presumably this is the Accurx system (the description matches the accurx system I used, and it has an NHS address).
The Accurx directors are 30-40 years old, but I don't know if they got the contract through the normal tendering process (in other words, I don't know if they are Matt Hancock's neighbors)
Some or all of it could be behaviour related.
For instance the bug listed in the comment where logging off before a transaction is completed - a post master who diligently logged off when they finished might trigger this, whereas one who left themselves permanently logged in wouldn't.
Currently we have a choice between "opting out is too much work, I'll let them see my stuff" and "opting out isn't worth it, I'll not read the page/kill the popup with developer tools"
Making the changes doesn't force the nobbers into "opting out isn't worth it" or "opting in isn't worth it". There is the option of adding a user friendly on/off switch. Was this objection written by somebody in a daytime TV advert demonstrating how hard it is to use a vaccum cleaner?
I'm surprised nobody has made a browser extension for autofilling the forms for the worst offenders.
"I'd expect a pro to have what they need already."
But a pro would know they don't want to be carrying a crowbar with them when they are stopped by police.
(I...maybe be overestimating how much pre-planning goes into household burglaries)
That document shows that there isn't much difference between school types (see figure 3. why they say there is a good deal of variation is beyond me). In particular all school types are more likely to overpredict by 2 grades than get the right grade, and all school types are more likely to overpredict by 1 grades than get the right grade
"It released statistics that showed average scores were actually higher compared to last year's, and that the distribution of grades was similar to last year's results too."
That's what would happen if that what the software was trained to do. It doesn't mean the right grades were given to the right person.
"Ping" could well be ignorance, not dishonesty. He probably heard the term - possibly from one of the maker of his privacy-and-security-disaster app - and has been using it incorrectly ever since. In this case to mean 'contacts a server, which contacts other phones.
In Hancock's defence he often displays astonishing ignorance, so this isn't too farfetched.
I am not a defence lawyer.
I don't think this will work.
The thing about loo roll is, over a long scale the overall demand is steady, so there is no incentive for the manufacturers to change how much they are making.
Food goes off, so the amount used in a year increases if it is panic bought. Hand sanitiser and masks get used more in a panic, but people don't fundamentally alter their bum output based on a respiratory disease.
