"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It may be a hard sell. You can keep a lot of what you need on a secured laptop that you keep with you. Secure paper files can be kept in a locked filing cabinet.

I do not try to secure miscellaneous parts and these rarely go missing.

So you can try, but management may suggest the above to you.

I often lock my office because I have multiple laptops and people leave all sorts of equipment for me to set up out fix.  I am a department of one.
You end up looking after people's laptops and phones - including those of your boss and the other senior people.

They need to be able to be secured.
