  • Ex-Coke worker stole laptops with data of up 74,000 staff [View news story]
    Atlantajuice, you are correct. Employee theft of retired computers is the most overlooked aspects of data security. Insiders (usually IT staff) take retired assets that supposed to be handed to a disposal vendor for proper processing.

    The answer is what I refer to as "reverse procurement"...If an organization purchased 100 laptops, but only received 99, procurement professionals would demand accountability. That same organization should demand at least the same level of accountability when it retires the 100 laptops, particularly when protected data is involved.
