DOJ Report says FBI Loses Three Laptops a Month

A Department of Justice audit has found that the Federal Bureau of Investigation loses approximately three laptops per month. The FBI loses the majority of the laptops, about 2.64 a month, through simple forgetfulness while 1 laptop a month is stolen....but they are getting better. :pat:

More info here, lots of charts / graphs etc. (pdf file)

Why is this even an issue. People screw up - no news there.

The bigger issue is whether or not the FBI IT is taking reasonable steps to encrypt the data on those machines so if (when) they are stolen by your average thief the data is not accessible.

The bigger issue is how people are lazy in their privacy and data protection practices.

They lost the same number of weapons during the same period too, according to the article in yesterdays newspaper.

The first thing in my mind was "did they want to have them get lost/stolen?

Load it up with a bunch of mis-information and have it get "lost" into the right hands.
