More than 100 USB memory sticks, some containing secret information, have been lost or stolen from the Ministry of Defence since 2004, it has emerged.
The department also admitted that more than 650 laptops had been stolen over the past four years - nearly double the figure previously claimed.
The Liberal Democrats condemned the latest security breaches as evidence of "shocking incompetence".
But the MoD insisted its policies were "generally fit for purpose".
Previously the MoD had confirmed that 347 laptops were stolen between 2004 and 2007.
