The AP and other news sources are reporting that BP lost a laptop containing the personal information of 13,000 people who applied for compensation for damages. The laptop was unencrypted, but was password protected. BP has sent notification letters to those effected.
This is just another reminder that laptop encryption makes life easier…and may even cost less than notification letters!
