Executive Summary

According to the FBI, two million laptops were stolen in the US alone in 2007 - equivalent to one loss every 15 seconds. Research from data clearing house Data Loss DB shows that, of data breaches made public in 2008, 32 per cent resulted from the loss or theft of laptops, mobile phones or other portable media and storage devices. Some of those losses can be attributed to the carelessness of the owner of the device - stories abound of laptops left in taxis and USB sticks found in car parks or launderettes.
