QOTD - Liston on unencrypted laptops

Almost every week, we have stories of laptop theft that contain the phrase, "...the data was not encrypted." Wake up people! If you have sensitive information on a machine that is DESIGNED to be carried off, you NEED to encrypt that data. It isn't all that hard, it isn't expensive, and I think we're to the point now where it should be considered negligence if it isn't being done. -- Tom Liston, SANS ISC handler and Senior Security Consultant and Malware Analyst for Inguardians
