You are in the role of a consultant. Provide a document fitting for your client. Include all the information that your client will find useful. Regarding laptop security, you should think of it from the perspective of data both on the system and on the network. Access to the network should be from both local and remote locations. Explain the technology thoroughly. Be sure to respond to the questions posed directly. But remember, as in any consulting engagement, the client may not have asked all the questions so make sure you consider the entire project. Include any assumptions that you make with regard to this project. Your document length should be 3-5 pages.
