After losing another laptop containing personal information, NASA wants to have all of its laptops encrypted within a months time with an intermediate ban of laptops containing sensitive information leaving its facilities. Between April 2009 and April 2011 it lost or had stolen 48 'mobile computing devices.' I wonder how it will be before other large organisations start following suit as a sensible precaution?

Most banks have been doing full HDD encryption for the past year or so (prior to that encrypting all data files), it's about time our government agencies join the party.
