UK MoD confirms laptop and memory stick losses
The UK Ministry of Defence is losing laptops at a rate of one every 12 days. In addition, 20 USB Flash Drives have been reported missing year-to-date.
As quoted at ITPro, Ministry of State Bob Ainsworth claimed that “new processes, instructions and technological aids” were being used to “mitigate” human error. One would hope that these new procedures include embedded hardware-level encryption in all mobile devices.
