Police: Data Loss

Lancashire Police have lost a laptop containing witness statements and the like.

The laptop, which was  not encrypted,  was stolen from a car.

To make matters worse the laptop was in the possession of an off-duty police officers when it was stolen.

Once again government staff are taking home data, and are being supplied laptops that are not encrypted.

The damage does not look too much in this case, so its not likely to change anything, but what would?
