    I believe you. This is what I spent a lot of time trying to convince customers was perfectly secure if done right. Plenty of large companies as well. The government isn't always backwards when it comes to technology.
    And yes. Bitlocker. Although domestic PCs don't usually come with TPM installed.

    If you need a loan to get the equipment, I'd worry about the size of your war chest if the contracts don't come along quick enough.

    Staying out of the "BYOD/which mac/car/watch should you show up with" debate...
