5 Ways To Secure Removable Media: Which Is Best For Your Enterprise?
Welcome to the 21st century. Your sensitive data is now highly mobile.
USB thumb drives, memory cards, iPods, rewritable CD/DVDs, and other removable media offer large storage capacity in a small, portable package. When customer records, intellectual property, health information, financial information or other sensitive records make their way onto these devices, it can put your organization at significant risk.
As an information security officer or administrator, how can you ensure your organization mitigates the risk of data breaches via removable media? Perhaps more importantly, how can you do this without negatively affecting productivity? Determining the risks specific to your business, implementing appropriate policies, and then using technical controls to help enforce policies is the right approach for minimizing risks without significantly impacting productivity.
