I work in an open plan area. We have "hot desks" (first come first serve). I use a laptop and don't want to carry it with me all the time. How can I leave it in the desk, making sure it is not possible (under reasonable circumstances) to steal it?
One option is to get a drawer with a lock. That's what I am currently asking for. Yet, I am curious of other ways. Any experience about this?
UPDATE on company.
We are a small and fairly new company, nothing like a big firm with strict and clear IT procedures and practices. No rules on locking or so. My employer own the PC since it paid for it, but we can also use it for our private purposes at home. In the end, it is understood that if users leave the company, they will pay off the laptop (if still fine) for a few hundred dollars, which is in any way much cheaper, given that the laptops are quite nice. So it's kind of "its a company laptop but well, kind of mine in the end". Don't expect too much in terms of rules or enforcement.
