Re: In light of what has happened with the theft of the VA laptop, what are the "best practices" for securing laptops?



PGP Corp has a product called "PGP Whole DisK Encryption". I have
never used it, but I've heard good things.

How do you feel and/or what is your experience with:
--Power-on passwords in the hardware/CMOS/BIOS Setup
--Hard drive locking passwords in the hardware/CMOS/BIOS Setup
--Laptops equipped with fingerprint readers for the above two options
--Windows NTFS EFS encryption
--TrueCrypt from www.truecrypt.org for encrypted storage areas
--Trusted Platform Module (TPM) https://www.trustedcomputinggroup.org
--Tokens that plug into USB
--Others?

Thank you in advance...
