Theft of two unencrypted laptops from the Medical Day Centre.
Undertaking issued to ensure that additional measures are put to in place to ensure that data security policies are adhered to consistently. Any portable media must be suitably encrypted, or, if this is impossible due to the functions required, physical security must compensate for the additional risk.
Reason for action
This event followed a previously self reported security breach. The laptops were unencrypted and insufficiently secure.
