Study Finds Missing-Laptop Costs Staggering to Businesses;
Few Take Precautions
- According to a new study, more than 300 businesses and other organizations lost more than 86,000 laptop PCs worth a staggering $2.1 billion.
- The majority of these companies with significant amounts of confidential data on their mobile PCs do not take advantage of even basic security practices.
- Transportation venues, such as airports and train stations are not the riskiest places; seemingly safe locations, such as homes and hotel rooms account for more than 40 percent of laptop disappearances.
