PC peripheral maker Kensington is offering MPs a free lock to ensure the
physical security of their laptops.
The firm said that the current furore around the theft of government
laptops means that MPs need to be able to lock down their laptops
wherever they are.
"With the recent publication of the O'Donnell, Poynter and Burton
Reviews and the forthcoming Thomas/Wallport review, attention has once
again been drawn to the safety of data held by government departments
and agencies," said Stephen Hoare, product manager at Kensington Europe.
"Using a lock will protect laptops and computers from opportunistic
theft, and will help to reassure the public that their personal details
are safe, no matter where they are being held."
