How do you admit you have lost your laptop?

If you lose your laptop it can be a nightmare, you might be able to claim for a new one on your insurance, but what about the lost data?
Before worrying about what you have lost, you need to protect yourself from any further security breaches:
- Log into any sensitive accounts (e.g. bank accounts, online e-mail, PayPal, eBay, iTunes, etc.) and change your password, it is possible that the computer memorized the password.
- If you have any other sensitive information on your computer that could be used by a thief, such as bank pin number, bills, credit card information, cell phone, etc., make sure to contact the relevant companies so that the account can be changed, flagged or monitored.
- Contact your computer manufacturer so they can make a note in their database that the computer has been stolen, in case the thief tries calling support.
