Laptop Stolen when Car Vandalized - CyberAngel Tracks and Recovers Stolen Computer
MILWAUKEE, WI - June 22, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- On May 14th, 2004, a young businesswoman in Milwaukee, WI came out of a restaurant at lunchtime only to find her car window smashed, her purse, make-up bag and business laptop computer stolen. The sales information on that computer represented several weeks worth of business, as well as confidential information about those clients. This theft not only represented the loss of hardware, but personal income as well. Fortunately, her company has had a standard practice for several years to protect all sales agent's computers and critical client information with The CyberAngel Security Software (www.thecyberangel.com).
On the evening of June 10, 2004, the stolen computer was powered up and sent covert alerts to The CyberAngel Security Monitoring Center, providing the location details from where that computer was being used. CSS, Inc. worked with local law enforcement authorities in Milwaukee and provided them with the location information to be able to secure search warrants for the premises. That very evening, police were able to obtain the computer from a third party that had recently purchased the laptop. The computer was returned to the rightful owner, and 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.
Recent recoveries include Hoboken, Albuquerque, Atlanta, Boston, Kinston, 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, GLB, or Sarbanes-Oxley.
