“We’re carrying more business data than ever on laptops, tablets and smartphones, but with 70% of people having lost this sort of device, that data is at risk.”
--Gytis Barzdukas, Mozy
The transition from work life into social life coincides with the peak time of day for losing things. 19% of property that’s lost is mislaid on public transport but people who travel to work by car are also likely to experience loss with 11% of lost and stolen items disappearing from a car.
Both electronic and data and printed information are at risk. The most commonly lost item is the smartphone, which, in our increasingly app-driven working environments, carries more business data than ever before. However, paperwork also features in the top ten and 7.5% of people have lost their laptop in the last 12 months.
