losing your computer data through theft >> online backup
However, I've decided not to do any of the above and simply appeal to what you already know - is your PC or laptop at risk of being stolen? Of course it is. Like any other business item but with far greater potential consequence.
Laptops are obviously stolen more than desktops due to greater convenience. Laptops are also on the move more than desktops making them more vulnerable.
All kinds of PC are at risk, including backup tapes and other removable media. That's why online data backup includes moving critical data to an off site location with high physical protection.
