If you password protect your BB, it will wipe all data after 10 (incorrect) attempts to enter the password. You can't access the device in any way - connected to a computer or stand alone - without the password.
You can also encrypt the data, but it will slow down the device, and heavens forbid you have to wipe it with encryption on, it can take HOURS - seriously!
That's why all Federal Government agencies will use ONLY Blackberries - they're the only truly secure mobile email devices!
