Did You Hear the One About....

Did you hear the one about a laptop containing highly sensitive data on 109,000 British pensions members being stolen?

"The Pensions Trust has confirmed that a laptop containing confidential data on 109,000 Britons was stolen from the offices of its software provider, NorthgateArinso.

The laptop contained data from 2007, including names, addresses, National Insurance numbers, salary details and in some cases bank details. The data was not encrypted, but the laptop had password protection..."

Ah, do you think that's enough security? Phoenix FailSafe would have made this laptop loss a whole lot less newsworthy because it can easily and remotely delete all the files and disable the laptop.
