Bloggers a Danger on Corporate Laptops

Here's an article from Microsoft Certified Professional online about how blogging from company laptops is a security risk. Russ Cooper references another article on SearchSecurity on the same subject.

What they're saying is that criminals and data thieves use data mining tools to piece together random bits of information posted on blogs. In some cases, employees blogging from their laptops may inadvertently leak bits and pieces of stuff that can be tied together.

Laptops in general have a spotty security record in many companies. I wrote about some tips for laptop security recently for SearchSMB.
