A law firm I've been in contact with has recently been broken into 3 times in the past 4 months. In spite of a number of laptops and other equipment containing sensitive information being stolen, the tech support company occasionally doing work for them has done nothing to safeguard against future theft. I proposed installing anti-theft software (such as Prey) and later considered establishing one system as an information-gathering honeypot with hidden keyloggers sending information to a number of email addresses.
All physical security best practices aside, what other measures could possibly be implemented here? These are all Windows systems. I don't doubt the separate incidents are linked and being carried out by connected if not the same criminals.
The firm has already been in contact with the local authorities. However due to a lack of documentation on the stolen items, there are no serial numbers or additional helpful information on the missing devices besides make and model, so recovery seems a dead end but at the least they're aware of the incidents.
