CISSP Practice question #243

Jane has determined our Annualized Loss Expectancy (ALE) for laptops is $250,000. She is recommending we implement full disk encryption and remote wiping capabilities on all our laptops. The $1,000 laptop value is still lost, but the $9,000 value loss from Personally identifiable information (PII) exposure would be mitigated. How many laptops do we lose per year?
A: 25
B: 50
C: 10
D: 15

    1. It depends on if we look at it pre or post implementing the countermeasres, pre would be $10,000, $1,000 (laptop) + $9,000 (PII, post would be the $1,000 from the laptop.
      Since Jane is recommending, I would assume we are pre implementation.
