Working from home???

"Unfortunately, this laptop contained payroll information, including employee name, monthly salary amounts and bank account numbers for Asia Pacific employees and was not encrypted."

Even if it was encrypted, IMO this information has no reason to be on a mobile platform like a laptop. No one in HR should need to work with this information at home for any reason.
