Jan Crawford comments on Hillary Clinton matter

Of the Hillary Clinton use of private devices to communicate government information, Jan Crawford noted

But it is not just Clinton's private server that may have contained classified information. The State Department filed court papers Wednesday afternoon saying it "does not believe that any personal computing device was issued by the Department" to Clinton.
That raises the question, how secure were her personal devices, like her BlackBerry, since they weren't issued by the State Department?

As for the server, Clinton's attorney confirmed it was wiped clean of all data before she turned it over to the FBI. But the FBI is hopeful that some material maybe recovered -- or a backup server located.

The sort of analysis being applied to the Clinton matter may have implications in disclosure issues in patent law and trade secret law.

What are reasonable efforts to maintain confidential information on a Blackberry or iPhone? The security of backup servers? How about information on discarded photocopiers?
