The need for hard disk encryption and laptop data security
Ever leave your laptop alone on a table in a coffee shop...just for a second? It can happen anytime, anywhere. With more and more of your business, your information, and your life available in a digital file, the need for easy-to-implement hard disk encryption is greater than ever. Consider these recent cases:
- An accounting firm that handles pension details for a large, multinational company loses the personal information for over 10,000 employees when they mail a CD-ROM between offices that is subsequently lost.
- A scientist working for a research company downloads roughly 15 times more data than the second-most-active user and promptly submits his resignation. The value of the stolen downloaded data was roughly 400 million US dollars.
- A US government agency discovers that an external hard drive containing personnel data is missing from a controlled area. Missing data affects all personnel hired over the course of two and a half years.
