"Isn't hard drive encryption literally one of the features of many of the products Lenovo sell?"

I'd be asking why this sort of information was on the hard drive. If you must have access to this sort of data externally then VPN into the company network and make sure you're using 2FA to logon.

Here's a Defcon talk about why you shouldn't be logging on or working with sensitive information in public places, No Tech Hacking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfFELeCP-oA
