UK Companies Concern About Flash Drives

It's not just the US military who should watch out about file security as regards drives. The Information Security Breaches Survey reports that only a handful of companies have adequate security configurations in PCs and laptops to stop file swapping in memory cards.

"The survey found that 33% of firms tell staff not to use such devices but rarely do anything to change the configuration of PCs and laptops to stop people moving data around with USB sticks."

Only 10% of the companies encrypt critical data stored on flash drive devices.
