UK: MoD Loses More Laptops, USBs, And 'Secret Files'

Siobhan Chapman writes on Computerworld UK:

The Ministry of Defence has revealed that 658 laptops have been stolen over the past four years. It had previously claimed that 347 laptops were stolen between 2004 and 2007.

In addition a further 747 laptops have been lost in that period, the MoD said, rather than the 89 laptops previously claimed.

The department also disclosed 121 of its USB memory sticks, some containing sensitive information, have been lost or stolen since 2004.
