80% of Companies Do Not Secure Removeable Media Stephen Fung May 8, 2007 Extras Have you ever lost a USB Drive at work? Did you know that its possible that no one cares? Better make sure it wasn’t something important… Over 43 per cent of those questioned have no controls whatsoever in place to manage removable media devices, 27.4 per cent leave it to the manager’s discretion, and 8.6 per cent have taken the drastic step of introducing a company-wide ban. Only 16.4 per cent use endpoint security software to manage the potential risks effectively. This is despite a raft of recent media stories surrounding insider data theft using removable media.
