Windows 7: Your laptop data is not safe. So fix it.

Your laptop data is not safe. So fix it.

The largest single type of security breach is the stolen or lost laptop, according to the Open Security Foundation, yet these computers are among the least protected of all IT assets. The costs of a data breach can be huge, including the loss of trade secrets, marketing plans, and other competitive information that could have long-term business damage, plus the immediate costs of having to notify people if their personal information was possibly at risk from the breach. Particularly in a recession, enterprise management can't afford to take these risks lightly.
[an error occurred while processing this directive] There is a way for IT to protect those laptops and the confidential information they contain: encryption. Without the combination of password security and encryption, any halfway-competent hacker has no problem siphoning hard drive contents and putting it to nefarious use.

The tablet PC I am using came with TPM and full drive encryption....built in to the hardware and software, respectively.

Not that I have any major secretes on my laptop....but it is nice to know it is there.

Heh - that reminds me - this may be one of the reasons why this thing is priced so high - that TPM hardware built into the laptop....
