Lenovo Tells Asia-Pacific Staff: Work Lappy with your Unencrypted Data on it has Been Nicked
Yes it's a blunder from a manufacture of laptops. However, Lenovo may have a policy about not encrypting laptops.

If the laptop is encrypted, without the right process in place, it can make HR investigations near on impossible.
