Computer Theft of Loss - Equals Game Over for Security

Ever ask you self the question, what is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of host security?

Consider this for an answer. It has nothing to do with Software Firewall, Hardware Firewall, Network Intrusion Prevention, Anti Virus, Network Anti Virus Protection, Host Intrusion Prevention and Anomaly Detection. You can have all of this security in place, but if lose a machine or a machine get stolen, the game is over. A PC in the hands of a capable hacher is basically defenseless. If you have PC with critical data the best you can do is protect the critical data with very strong encryption, even then if the hacker is REALLY good, your chances of losing that data is high.

Losing computers happens to everyone, see article below, but that doesn't mean you should not do your absolute best to ensure that PC's are locked down or kept in secure places when not in use.
