Securing Your Laptop Before It Gets Stolen
DATA PROTECTIONOctober 15, 2010
Protecting sensitive data on your laptop before it gets stolen is easier than securing it after the fact. The New York Times reports on the software programs that can help protect such data in the event of laptop theft. The best method is to "simply not keep any sensitive information on your laptop in the first place," the report states. But since that is not always possible, experts point to encryption, tracking and data removal software options as ways to ensure the integrity of your data in the event it lands in the hands of someone else.
