Data being lost again? Link The Laptop figure I believe is inflated, I would guess most the 'stolen' laptops are at least 10 years old and running windows 95 and are in the bottom of some QM's special stores locker. For stolen I would read forgotten about! As for the USB drives, most likely in the bottom of a few desk draws when Officers have moved Jobs. I would say the whole thing is more about poor accounting for assets more than dishonesty.
