DOJ Audit Reveals FBI Let Its Laptops Go Missing and Stolen

What's worse? The fact FBI lost 11 laptops a month for two years, or the fact that it does not even know what was on them....

Today the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) released a report on an audit that it had been conducting on the FBI for nearly the past six years (PDF). The investigation was started when members of the FBI had been made aware that weapons and laptops containing sensitive and classified information had been lost and stolen. The investigation was initially started by the Office of the inspector General (OIG) over the control of weapons and laptop computers with several other government bodies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the United States Marshal Service (USMS).

Initial data from early audits revealed that the FBI count not account for 317 laptops that were lost, missing or stolen over a 28 month period. Despite these incidents, details in the report revealed that the FBI did not report the missing or stolen laptops to the DOJ and information on these items were not entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database. The report also revealed that those that were aware of the missing laptops did not report the incidents in a timely manner and investigations were not launched in an attempt to find and retrieve the laptops.
