The biggest single point of failure with laptop security - people

In another survey once again the common failings of laptop security revolve around users, not hardware.

A few numbers to get you thinking:
50% of business managers switch off encryption
12, 000 business laptops are left at Airports in the US every week
67% of left laptops are never reclaimed

For security to be successful a holistic approach, combined with staff training and buy-in are essential.
