The RSA conference is widely known as the world's leading security event but journalists at the BBC are clearly out of the loop. In a report trailing the keynote speech by Information Commissioner Richard Thomas the following appeared:  

“In a speech later at the Royal Society of Arts in London, Mr Thomas will urge companies and other organisations to hold the least amount of data possible and warn they should face tougher penalties when any is mishandled.”  

Fortunately for delegates at the conference the commissioner's driver knew better than the BBC and delivered Mr Thomas to the doors of the ExCel centre this afternoon and not the, admittedly more elegant, portal of the Royal Society of Arts just off the Strand.
