BBC News: M&S staff details left on laptop
Marks and Spencer has been found in breach of data protection rules after the theft of a laptop containing the personal details of 26,000 employees.
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said the data on the laptop, which was stolen from the home of an M&S contractor, was unencrypted.
The ICO has ordered M&S to make sure all laptop hard drives are fully encrypted by April 2008.
