According to the Office for National Statistics, computers are now the most commonly stolen item in UK burglaries. Laptops and tablet computers especially are small, easily portable and highly attractive on the second-hand goods market.
A computer theft from your business could be embarrassing as well as disruptive. Imagine having to contact all of your customers to inform them that your computer has been stolen and criminals were now in possession of their bank details.
As well as theft, intruders can vandalise your equipment, of course. If they are more sophisticated and have sufficient knowledge, they could even set up electronic ‘back doors’ into your computers to access them remotely without you knowing.
