    • E.

      Wear it like a hat

    Correct Answer
    C. In a specialst security cage designed to house my laptop
    Explanation
    Placing the work laptop in a specialist security cage designed to house the laptop ensures that it is stored in a secure and protected environment. This reduces the risk of theft or unauthorized access to the sensitive RAF battle-plans. The other options, such as leaving it on a train or in a car in full view, would expose the laptop to potential theft or unauthorized access. Placing it in a lead-lined safe 50 feet under the place of work may provide physical protection, but it does not guarantee security against other risks. Wearing it like a hat is not a practical or secure option.
