On Monday, September 3rd, Columbus’ local ABC/FOX affiliate covered the increase in laptop theft around The Ohio State University’s campus area. Data security has become a major issue for these burglary victims.

Providing an expert opinion on how to secure your electronics from theft was Peter DiGravio of Accurate IT Services. DiGravio offered advice on the use of inexpensive tools for protecting your laptop, using such items as physical laptop locks. He also suggested software that helps police trace a laptop’s IP address to its physical location. Both of these items can be purchased for under $20.
