First let me say that this is way out of my area of technical expertise. But here's an idea: when a memory stick is inserted into a USB port, the operating system tries to assign it a drive letter (E F etc). So, there *may* be a way to restrict a user account so that new drive letters cannot be assigned after they log in. This would make it very difficult for most users to access a memory stick / flash drive.

Failing any of the above and only if there are no USB devices currently used you could always disable the USB support in BIOS.

Remember that any USB device like a camera is capable of having data dumped to it if the person is really trying to steal data.
