Was Atta carrying a Laptop Computer?

There is more turbulence ahead for executives taking their laptop computers thru airports.

Airport SecurityMany company managers are concerned about delays and loss of data over the Transportation Security Agency's latest iteration of the airline-passenger and baggage screening systems.

How many additional delays will be caused for employees traveling with technology? How many people will have access to sensitive corporate information in the airport screening process? That is the thought on the minds of many company managers.

Granted, many passengers worry about safety and welcome stringent inspections. The question, say experts, is how to balance safety with practicality while keeping delays to a minimum. The business community's concerns are the same as that of the airlines. No one wants delays, but how can you avoid them.

The two major concerns are:
1. Screening delays caused by executives traveling with laptop computers and other technology such as portable LCD Projectors.
2. Theft of computers with sensitive corporate data.

Laptop computer rentals is one solution that helps speed the process and protect company data in public spaces.
