Laptop encryption warning after Barcelona FC theft

Credant Technologies : 08 May, 2008  (Technical Article)
Despite significant physical protection, a laptop belonging to Barcelona football club Manager goes missing, highlighting the need for encryption on mobile devices.
Credant Technologies says that reports of the manager of Barcelona FC having his laptop stolen last week highlights the fact that a laptop theft can happen to anyone, and not just a famous football manager with bodyguards.

'Joan Laporta was reportedly fuming as the laptop apparently went walkabout whilst he was managing his team in their game against Manchester United last week at Cap Nou,' said Peter Mitteregger, Credant's President of Europe.

'It wasn't bad enough that Laporta had to endure a no-score-draw from the match, despite the fact that his team had 65 per cent of the ball's possession during the event. The guy gets back to his office in the morning and finds his laptop has gone missing,' he said.

According to Mitteregger, Laporta is lucky that he is sufficiently high profile enough for the Catalan police, the Mossos d'Esquadra, to commit a team of detectives to the high-profile theft.

'Other laptop owners may not fare as well as the Barcelona manager, so we are urging all portable PC users to review their security arrangements, and encrypt any personal or company data they hold on their machines,' he said.
