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?
