Secure your Laptops

CDA Tech Pros will secure your company’s laptops so in the event of theft or loss the data contained will be unavailable.

Laptop theft is one of the fastest growing problems in the security sector. Who can forget the nightmare scenario that occurred at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs? A department analyst loaded a file onto his laptop and took it home for the night, where burglars promptly walked off with it — along with identifying information on 26.5 million veterans. While the laptop was eventually retrieved, most are not. Fully 97 percent of all stolen notebooks are never recovered, according to the FBI.

The threat is a big one. An estimated 750,000 laptops were stolen last year, up from 600,000 in 2003, according to Absolute Software, a maker of tools to retrieve lost or stolen laptops.

The threat of lost data is the top worry. But close behind is the fear of identity theft. For businesses, all this means it’s mission-critical to have a laptop-security program in place.
