Losing your laptop can be expensive in three ways. First, you’ll spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to replace the hardware. Second, you’ll suffer the time and aggravation of restoring your data, all the while hoping you have everything backed up properly. But most expensive? Surviving the backlash and legal consequences of losing customer data, financial records and private company information.
