    Well that sucks for them. Why does a single laptop contain that much info on it for that many people?

    because fortune 500 comapnies use excel spreadsheets instead of databases for everything.

    you'd be suprised how much garbage is floating out there.


    If I was dishonest, i could download the names, address, credit card number, cvcc, expr date, and so forth of over 2 million people. There is absolutely nothing to stop me from doing this, other than the obvious legal ramifications and my NDA.

    I deal with insurance companies everyday... To connect to their VPN's, some require a SecureID Access Code that changes every 60 seconds (A Keychain I have to carry with me), and some even require a phone call for security verification before access is granted each time...

    And then another customer, who uses SSN's for EVERY PIECE OF DATA offered us free range unsecured access anytime we want it, and gave us a public IP on their domain.. I told them no way... too risky because they wanted me to sign a non-disclosure statement... I said not until you secure your network... lol.

    We do that, plus quite a bit more... I would think that Boeing (one of Lockheed's biggest competitors) would have similar security systems to ours set up on their laptops. If one of ours gets lost, it's a tough cookie to crack.

    That's why the information is on a laptop... if it stayed at the office, it could be on a desktop.

    :werd: I need to sync mine up to the system soon.

    Do you mean SecureID for VPN Access? Or just for PC access itself?

    We have SecureID for VPN access, then rotating encryption and passwords to even start booting the laptop itself.
