Stolen Business Laptop Makes Its Way Home - Computer Stolen During Apartment Break-In
HOBOKEN, NJ - June 9, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- On October 14th, 2003, a resident of Hoboken, NJ came home to find his apartment broken into, and among other items, his corporate laptop computer was stolen. The sensitive data on that computer represented medical and financial information for hundreds of clients. Luckily for him, his company had the foresight to protect that computer and its critical information with The CyberAngel Security Software (www.thecyberangel.com).
In November of 2003, the stolen computer was used on several occasions and sent covert alerts to The CyberAngel Security Monitoring Center, providing the location details from where that computer was being used, now in Miami, Florida. The stolen computer was moving regularly between 3 different locations, making it difficult for local authorities to catch up with the stolen computer.
CSS, Inc. worked with local law enforcement authorities in Hoboken and Miami, as well as the NJ District Attorneys office, and provided them with the different location information to be able to secure search warrants for the premises. After several months of solid investigative work and cooperation, the laptop computer was recovered and returned to the rightful owner. All of the sensitive business information on that computer was secure and intact upon recovery.
The CyberAngel's "Real Time Security" protected the critical information on that computer from compromise, and provided Tracking and Location Identification to affect recovery. Industry-wide, computer theft has increased 52% since 2002, and is the second leading cause of financial loss, right behind loss due to virus damage. Identity theft and compromise of confidential information are also on the rise.
With recent recoveries include Albuquerque, Atlanta, Boston, Baltimore, Houston, and Chicago, and with a recovery ratio near 87%, The CyberAngel is helping fight these trends. The strong authentication and data security The CyberAngel offers makes it a viable compliance tool for major Privacy Acts like HIPAA or Sarbanes-Oxley.
