A Look at Laptop Theft

By Peter Piazza

Twenty-nine percent of all stolen laptops are taken from offices, with thefts from cars responsible for another 25 percent of laptop losses, according to survey data from CREDANT Technologies, a security software provider. Some of the 283 executives who responded to the survey noted that office laptops had been stolen despite being locked or even glued to desktops. Only 10 percent of the units had a full-disk encryption solution in place, and 82 percent of the stolen laptops were never recovered.
