Consequences of Improper Use
Do you know the consequences of not using portable storage devices securely?
Storing personal data and information on these devices can lead to serious data breaches if they are not kept safe, which could lead to official investigations, fines and substantial damage to your organisation's cyber security, information security and reputation.
Portable storage devices, mainly being USB's, flash drives and memory sticks, are a popular way for hackers to transmit viruses and malicious code while compromising your business' information. They're small, readily available, extremely portable and inexpensive, making them extremely appealing to attackers, and dangerous for you.
