US Secret Service laptop with Trump Tower floor plans and other sensitive material has been stolen from an agent’s vehicle in New York. Nigel Tozer, Solutions Marketing Director EMEA at Commvault commented below.
Nigel Tozer, Solutions Marketing Director EMEA at Commvault:
“In the data economy that we’re increasingly a part of, this sort of thing is likely to happen more often, and the number of people with the skills necessary to gain access to ordinary laptops is rising dramatically.
While a normal business clearly can’t take the steps that presidential staff can, having a backup with location and remote wipe functionality is a very sensible step, maybe even the minimum you should take action on in the light of GDPR regulations that come into force early next year. Your data may not be something that compromises the security of the leader of the free world, but the fines and bad press from a breach – that you must declare by law – certainly won’t do your business any favours”
