SUGGESTED ANCHOR LEAD: What are companies doing to keep customers' private information safe from criminals? Not enough according to the experts. Walter Ocner reports.

SCRIPT: With the emergence of networked computers, cyber-thieves have found that stealing information can be much more lucrative than stealing the computers themselves. What are companies doing to keep employee and customer information safe and prevent identity theft or other crimes? John Livingston of Absolute Software has the answer.

CUT (Livingston): Recently, there has been a rash of laptop thefts containing transaction records and personal information on thousands of customers. This information could allow thieves to have a field day ruining people's credit. Smaller companies can experience equally devastating results both financially and publicly. It's important that businesses limit access to sensitive information and put technological safeguards in place and deploy computer tracking and recovery software, such as Computrace LoJack for Laptops as a last line of defense. Not only can it help recover a missing computer, but it can delete any sensitive files remotely. By taking precautions now businesses can save time, money and possible lawsuits in the future.
