A new study conducted by the Ponemon Institute has found that more than 10,000 laptops are lost in the 36 largest US airports each week, and nearly 70% of those laptops are never reclaimed. The study analyzed the number of lost laptops in American and Canadian airports each week. Select study results include: • At major US airports such as Los Angeles International, Miami International and John F. Kennedy in New York, up to 1,000 laptops were lost per week and nearly 70% are never reclaimed • Airport areas that laptops are most likely lost by passengers include security checkpoints, departure areas and passenger clubs or lounges • Over 70% of business travelers feel rushed when trying to get on their flights and 60% worry that delays due to security checkpoints will cause them to miss their flight. • Over 53% of business travelers say that their laptops contain confidential or sensitive information. However, 65% of these travelers admit they do not take steps to protect or secure the information contained on their laptop.
