In response to the one of the largest disclosures of information in history the UK government responds with policy which mandates the usage of encryption on laptops and media devices when taken away from the offices.
An email was sent to all UK civil servants (government employees) which informs them of the new policy--"prohibts laptops and hard drives containing sensitive data from being taken out of the government buildings unless the devices are encrypted.
