Portable Storage Policy
Portable storage media allow employees to access or back up business data both inside and outside the office. However, the ease of use presented by portable storage devices can also place companies at significant risk of lost or stolen data. Moreover, malware can infect portable storage media, which can then be inadvertently or purposely introduced inside an organization’s networks, jeopardizing business operations.
This policy from TechRepublic Premium provides guidelines for the regulated and secure usage of such devices. Its goal is to protect the organization and its employees from internal and external threats and to provide mechanisms for maintaining and monitoring data access in these scenarios.
From the policy:
No sensitive or confidential data should be kept on a portable storage device in unencrypted format. Employees must use software-based encryption, such as BitLocker, or hardware-based encrypted flash drives.
