Wipe Stolen/Lost Laptop


We have BitLocker enabled on our Windows 10 Dell laptops. However, in the event a laptop is stolen/lost. Is there a way to force a wipe if it comes back online?

I have seen posts which say "use kscript to set the bios via cctk to require boot password".  Has anyone had experience with this?  Does it work?

Thanks in advance for your help!

If you have not set a password to start the machine then obviously your data is at risk, regardless of installing bitlocker. 

It is possible to run a script if the device reconnects, but you might just as easily format the drive as set the password.
