Removable media such as DVDs and CDs, and USB-based memory drives – also known as flash drives, key drives, and thumb drives – are highly convenient tools in the modern workplace. They facilitate fast, high-capacity data backup and transfer, and make it easy to move files between work and home. Their convenience can potentially expose the enterprise to additional risk, as these devices are easily lost or otherwise compromised.
Use Info-Tech's Removable Media Acceptable Use Policy to guide and enforce consistent behaviors among end-users that balance managing the risk with allowing employees to use these handy tools to do their work more effectively.
