British govt loses more than a 1000 laptops,
March 5, 2008, 4:33PM
London (England) – In a report to the House of Commons, British
ministries and departments said they’ve lost more than a thousand
laptops over the last decade. 200 of those were lost in the last year
alone. The biggest offender was the Ministry of Defense which lost
almost 50% of the total or 503 laptops.
In addition to laptops, the MoD lost 23 PCs since 1998. Other agencies
like the Department of Health, Ministry of Justice and HM Revenue and
Commons lost sizable numbers of computers. The numbers in the report
could have been much higher as the totals didn’t include the Home or
The report comes on the heels of a high-profile case in January where
the moD lost a laptop containing 600,000 names of people who were
interested in joining the armed forces. The folks at the US Veterans
Administration are probably wiping their foreheads now and saying,
"Thank god! It's not just us!"
