Security Behaviour Database
All Behaviours > Reporting lost or stolen devices

Reporting lost or stolen devices

Lost or stolen devices should be reported immediately. This allows the device to be locked or remotely wiped to prevent unauthorised access.

Why is it important?

By reporting a device as missing, security teams can take necessary precautions to mitigate harm. Devices can be remotely wiped and accounts can be blocked.

If a device isn't reported as lost or stolen, the potential impact of the situation is greater.
