A laptop belonging to Warren Bamford - vice president of corporate security at the United Kingdom’s National Grid – has been stolen from his room at the Hilton hotel in Warwick.
Bamford, who joined the National Grid after retiring from the FBI in 2010, reported the theft and the police have launched an investigation into the matter, The Independent reports
However, fortunately, no sensitive information was stored on the laptop at the time of the theft.
The organization’s representatives confirmed the incident and revealed that none of the files from the computer could “cause any sort of security risk.”
The National Grid is responsible for delivering gas and electricity to millions of people in the UK, which is why it could be a tempting target for cybercriminals. On the other hand, a VP of corporate security probably knows best how to properly secure sensitive information.
