The Commission informs me that in 2013 no items of mobile equipment were lost and in 2014 one piece of mobile equipment was lost. This was a Blackberry mobile phone which was left on a commuter train on 22 January 2014.

All Commission Blackberry’s are password protected. The Commission’s standard procedure was followed and the device was disabled and all data was remotely wiped off as soon as possible the following day. The Commission’s Information Manager was informed and an incident report was created.
