As Managers and IT Pros, I recommend you add to your reference base of "best practices," for the Encrypting File System (EFS). And with mobile computing becoming more the norm than the exception it's critical to employ these best practices on the hard drives. Here's a good knowledge base article to add to your reference library and share with your team:

As always, we invite you to add to the commentary here or send me an e-mail at sibaraki@cips.ca.

Thank you,
