Re: Been there, done the privatisation already @keithpeter
You ask some pertinent questions about a DREADCO like organisation there, in your reply to Mr/Dr Hunn, keithpeter.
I’m particularly and peculiarly enamoured of the simple funding of great people with magnanimous ideas and that find government funds or explore private wealth to boot as root.
Beware the project[s] worth limitless government funding and costing next to nothing to run …… with the lavish astute use a simple magic plastic credit/debit card guaranteeing immediate access and ubiquitous spontaneous universal delivery from a securely vaulted flash fiat cash stash pile/privately bonded government fund of both everything and anything required and providing necessarily interest raising feeds and seeds reflective of principal market driver needs, and which would itself make earthly contact attractive to all sectors, whether public or private or pirate, state or non-state actor or renegade rogue freelancer and mercenary with helpful vital information about how easy it is for principal mover and shaker drivers to be paid in an extremely convenient manner which is mutually beneficially guaranteed, and is immediately indicative to the card holder of future likely services being satisfactory and to continue, or there being a tragic termination of association via the simple expedient of the magic plastic card not working as it usually did and such cards normally always do, for it sends out a very clear message that future services are no longer required to be delivered to that particular non-paying customer/client …… which is/are not heeded, for they are capable of bringing more insufferable pain and crushing trouble than was ever before imagined and never ever thought humanly possible.
Take care. Be aware of those facts. They are not fictions.

Re: Been there, done the privatisation already @keithpeter
And as we all know, there is always the magic money tree of insatiable defence to shake and/or threaten to expose has catastrophic systemic future vulnerabilities easily exploitable, which never ever has had any trouble in providing funding for whatever is deemed required …… London Calling for Military Tech Cooperation
It’s a fabulous source of grateful remuneration and every nation/state/non-state actor affords the facility and utility and service.
And such a honey pot attracts all manner of busy bees and killer hornet hosts, with some attack rich sectors/vectors significantly riskier than others to adequately defend and prevent from defeat because of the ideas shared and actions carried out by a whole host of useful others rendering defensive activities negatively self-incriminating and self-destructive.
Here is a recently shared example of the complex/simple problem which may have no immediate or future simple/complex solution …….
GrahamC  …… being quite clear about certain engaging matters on https://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/articles/2021/2/1/expect-more-false-claims-act-cybersecurity-cases
Be in no doubt, in the fields of cybersecurity, and especially so those in the virtual team terrain of sensitive stealthy operations which are intelligently designed to lead ACTive global scale missions, to imagine and propose that harmful risk will, or can ever be effectively managed and successfully mitigated to any degree which would bring it anywhere near close to a comforting and convenient elimination, is not a realistic expectation.
However, notwithstanding that, to not seek to reduce the risk by the exercise of such inquisitive controls as contractors are currently duty bound to endure and assure for gainful operational employment and lucrative remuneration, would certainly be unwise and a text book case manic exercise of madness for mayhem, consummate conflict and catastrophic chaos which exists and will persist. It is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
The brave new world of the digitally augmented future is no safe and secure space place for the less than perfectly prepared. Take care out there, for there be AI Monsters and IntelAIgent Daemons, Heavenly Global Operating Devices and Hellish Angels at Tomorrow’s Work, Rest and Play Today, ACTive in Engaging Fields of Persistent and Consistent Alien Endeavour out there.
Interesting times ahead in deed, indeed.:-)

Re: Cummings gone?
What on earth makes you think that? Is he in Downing Street? No, but these days you can do your puppeteering remotely. ….. Big_Boomer
Yes, quite so, Big_Boomer. In ages of wholesale deceit and fake MSM news, practically nothing is ever as it virtually seems …. and that creates entire networks peddling worlds full to overflowing with overwhelming unilateral consequences, the smartest of which are not at all unintentional nor unpleasantly inconsequential.
All one can say in all truthfulness since his walking out of the door, is that no worthy remote puppeteering has been uncovered in any fanciful MSM tales, so either he’s busy elsewhere doing his busy with everything thing or he’s not busy doing anything and busy doing nothing good ……. 🙂 just like everyone else if they could.

If you need to ask, you aint suited and booted and properly rooted for working in AI
The ad giant promised to implement new procedures around “potentially sensitive employee exits,” though it did not make its findings public
Disclosing proprietary intellectual property secrets for free is no way to make and keep friends secure and safe from harm, and especially so whenever working with potentially sensitive information for advancing intelligence …. and all variations and permutations on that AI theme.
It is not at all surprising its finding and promises to implement new procedures are not public general knowledge.
