What to do when someone steals your laptop ...Lap top Theft

What to do when someone steals your laptop computer.My daughter and husband live in Cosa Rica. They were gone for half an hour, and when they came back someone had stole both of their lap tops. They have a business in the stock market and trading, plus a lot of personnel data on the lap tops. Who do they notify to cancel this information, or how do they go about deleting this info. Thank You for any help.

I would report this to the police there.  Also, call the company of the coputer (ex. Dell) and see if they can cancel anything on the computer.  Also, if you have travel insurance, it might cover theft, and you can get money for new computers. 

Never be afraid to try, remember... Amateurs built the ark Professionals built the Titanic
