Data confidentiality is a genuine problem - we don't actually know how companies handle our data in real life. It helps if they have formal accreditation such as ISO 27001 but I've no idea if HMRC does (it should).
When submitting info to HMRC, are you allowed to restrict certain elements e.g. can you cover up account numbers and sort codes, blank out out the last 5 transactions etc? Anything you can do to pepper pot personal data makes it a bit harder for data thieves to do anything useful with your data.
Sounds like his worrying extends beyond 'anyone' in HMRC having a read of his info out of idle curiosity and into information security given the fact he has been erroneously given someone else's information - which is terrible!
We're all giving up info left right and center and hoping for the best. It's just how the world works now. He has to deal with HMRC whether he likes it or not so he's just going to have to suck it up. I do have a lot of empathy for him though.
