Business Data Loss
With 70% of people having lost a data storage device, business plans, contracts and proposals are disappearing in the back of taxicabs, in hotel rooms and on commuter trains.
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.
