If you work for a mid-sized to large Canadian business, there's almost a one-in-three chance your boss is telling you to leave your iPod at home, a new survey by Ipsos-Reid suggests. There's even less chance you'll be allowed to bring in your personal laptop computer or one of those thumb-sized USB storage devices. A rising fear of data theft is prompting corporate Canada, as well as governments that store sensitive information, to target small computing devices.

A respectful relationship with the employees and a proactive security policy with things like broad information encryption well planned comprehensive security practices will go a long way in securing sensitive information. Much more than trying to play catch up with technology that in most cases make for a more pleasant and productive environment instead of the knee-jerk reaction of making the employees and their property the enemy. In the end one might just start feeling like the enemy and act the part.
