did you hear the one about...
A UK! NHS health trust's (no names) dept insisted that thier entire Dept was issued with the latest laptops and docking stations for thier staff. (pre-safeboot rollout) even though they rarely ever went or had need for a pc off site.
(yet another example of: keeping up with the joneses and lets waste £££ just to keep next years budgets up.)
They were so lazy they coudlnt be bothered to take the laptops off the desks and lock them away at night in thier lockable desk drawers.
Then one day they left the blinds open (probably had been left like that for weeks) and probably the (insecure) sash windows unlocked, and suprise suprise the next day when they turned up for work all the laptops had been nicked.
Sounds much like the one about [major mobile phone teleco in 'middle' england] senior users not having corporate backups of corp data held on thier zillions of laptops.
Then one day, someone cases out the HQ, and the security sweeps of the staff and takes a large window out and casually walks around one of the buildings for an hour or two and helps themselves to the very latest expensive(toshiba/dell) laptops and all the latest corporate data that the competition would kill for.
(moto of this one: the security staff are there to maintain site security, not work as junior staff filling up the photocopiers/Printers.)
[i belive this cockup has now been fixed and security seriously beefed up]
mines the matt black one with the night vision goggles in the deep pockets....
