Do You Need To Physically Secure Your Tech?

When people talk about security in the tech and information realm they usually mean digital security. And while this is obviously very important it is also dangerous to leave physical secure data storage as an afterthought. It is more likely that the average person can grab your laptop from your car than hack into your laptop.

Though to be fair, a large number of people can hack your computer, but it is a very specialized type of criminal who does this, whereas it is not necessary to know special programming to deny you access to your laptop- they just have to steal it!
