Nice piece by Lucy Kellaway (Financial Times) syndicated by the Irish Times – on the subject of company laptops being stolen.  Perhaps she is being a little provocative – but much of Lucy’s angle on security of the company laptop is ‘on the money’.

You want to promote an understanding with company employees of the risks associated with downloading confidential data (including any details of how to access confidential systems) to laptops and/or other devices.  It is one of may risks.  I would tend to agree with Ms. Kellaway – the security cable around the leg of the piano is not much of a deterrent.
