Flash Memory Drives can be easily misplaced. JDP Digital advises
Implement these 8 simple steps to protect your company's information
1) Ask your USB Flash
Memory supplier to imprint your logo on every device.
2)Have your supplier
“serialize” every USB Flash Memory unit and set up a process internally
to record which employee is responsible for which device.
3) Have your USB Flash
Memory supplier password protect each device. Don’t just password
protect a portion of the drive by partitioning it, protect the entire
drive. If you don’t do this your employees will use the unprotected
portion - every time.
4) For “super secret”
information have your USB Flash Memory supplier implement a data
encryption service on the drive.
5) Outlaw with immediate
disciplinary action all non-company specific USB Flash Memory devices.
6) Create a data
destruction action plan for your USB Flash Memory devices just like you have for
your sensitive paper documents that you are probably shredding using
an outside vendor.
7) Put your USB Flash
Memory data plan in writing, train your employees on the plan, and have
them literally sign off on the plan.
8) IMMEDIATELY IMPLEMENT YOUR DATA
