Reading College IT equipment stolen

Reading College IT equipment stolen

posted in Cyber-Security ● 24 Sep 2012

Thousands of pounds worth of ICT equipment was stolen from Reading College on the evening of September 12th just hours after it had been delivered.Items stolen included iMacs, MacBooks, laptops, computers and memory sticks. Thankfully, as the ICT equipment was new, it’s unlikely there was any private or confidential data on it when it was stolen.In the vast majority of cases, loss of information is far more costly than the loss of equipment itself. In addition to loss of business and reputation, organisations such as the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) have the power to impose hefty fines (up to the value of £500,000.00) in the event of data loss or theft where private individuals’ information is compromised. This includes, for example, the theft of backup tapes stored in a fire-safe onsite.Redstor’s online backup service ensures data is safely and automatically backed up offsite in an encrypted format. In so doing, it helps ensure organisations are protecting themselves against data loss. It also removes the reliance on tapes which helps reduce the risk of losing data whilst it’s being transported off-site unencrypted.
