Data Loss: MoD

On 20th July 2008 another MoD laptop was reported stolen. The laptop contained confidentail/secret documents, was unencrypted, and was stolen from the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool. The laptop was later recovered by the police, however even if the laptop was intact this does not mean that the entire hard drive was not copied before it was recovered.

In the past year the MoD have lost around 2 laptops every day.

Examples of MoD Data loss include, a laptop stolen with a lists of personnel information and the MoD admitting losing 650 laptops in the past year
