NHS Education for Scotland (NES) has agreed to improve data security 
after the details of trainee doctors were left on a stolen laptop. The 
body informed the Information Commissioner's Office of the data breach 
involving the theft of an unencrypted laptop containing the personal 
information of 6,377 applicants for medical training positions.

The information included addresses, phone numbers and summaries of the 
applicants.

Ken Macdonald, Assistant Information Commissioner Scotland, said: 
"Password protected laptops are not secure. I urge all organisations to 
restrict and encrypt the amount of information stored on portable 
devices that can be taken off site."
