Three or four FBI laptop computers are lost or stolen each month and the agency is unable to say in many instances whether information on the machines is sensitive or classified, the Justice Department's inspector general said Monday.
You have got to be kidding me!
1. That three to four pieces of equipment or either "lost or stolen" EACH MONTH and no one has figured a way to stop it.
2. That they have no idea what is on the laptops to beging with- it could be classified or..maybe not- no one really knows.
The Boston field office reported a stolen laptop containing software for creating identification badges. The laboratory division at Quantico, Va., said that a stolen laptop contained names, addresses and phone numbers of FBI personnel. The New Orleans field office reported a stolen laptop that had been used to process surveillance-related electronic digital imaging.
I worked at a university and we found out that some of our floor care machinary was walking of site and we developed an invtory plan that had each and every one of the pieces was tracked with it's serial number and the person who was responsible for it. And now I've been told that such a system doesn't exsit for the FBI.
Of the 160 laptops lost or stolen over a 44-month period, 10 contained sensitive or classified information. The bureau did not have records on whether 51 others contained such data.
