Lockeed Martin Census

2011 UK census stays on paper - 15 Dec 2008 - Computing
"Lockheed Martin will be acting as the prime contractor and will develop the systems to be used to handle and process the census data, but access to the data itself will be restricted to a consortium of subcontractors who are based in the UK and either UK or EU owned and will be protected to the standards required by the Data Protection Act 1998."
Maybe, but they sure could code in a backdoor which sends information somewhere else couldn't they? How about China? I suppose if China offer to pay Lockheed Martin more than the fine from the UK Government would be, then it's a good business decision isn't it?
