Accidents will happen and dabs.com is warning laptop users not to make the mistake of failing to properly protect their devices at home, at work and while on the move.

The leading online electronics retailer has called on individuals and businesses to make sure they take all the necessary steps to avoid having to needlessly shell out on a new machine because of one unfortunate mishap.

But itís not just spilt cups of coffee and childrenís sticky fingers that can prove extremely costly where laptops are concerned. According to research carried out by Sony as part of its VAIO Digital Business Report 2013, out of the 600 UK companies it questioned, one in four admitted to having had a laptop lost or stolen in the past 12 months Ė thatís a quarter of laptop owners put at risk of becoming a victim of fraud and identity theft.

Dabs.com has urged home users and companies to take action to protect their hardware and their data before it is too late.

Sharon Bogacki, Product Manager at dabs.com, said: "There are plenty of options out there when it comes to laptop security and it is simply a case of individuals and firms needing to be proactive before disaster strikes. Data loss can be devastating for home users and extremely inconvenient and costly for businesses, as can situations where hardware sustains irreparable damage because it has been dropped or suffered a knock.

ďBy investing in a good quality laptop case or bag, taking out an adequate level of insurance, backing up data to an external drive and protecting data and software with the best virus protection available, users can rest easy and save themselves an awful lot of hassle.Ē
