Unbelievably 4,073 laptops, 5,838 PDAs and 63,135 mobile phones were left in London taxi seats in a recent six month period according to a survey by the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association - according to the BBC that works out at three devices per cab on average.

Many companies are trying to find a way to deal with the challenge of corporate data being held on mobile devices. There are several vendors providing encryption and access control products. It's important to start off not with the technology but by considering the risk. This may sound like common sense but sadly it's not.
