Posted by: on Mar 11, 2009 | No Comments

Following up on the breach in Edinburgh just days ago Daniel Östner, CEO at BlockMaster commented on the urgency of the USB problem in SC Magazine and Computer Weekly.

Östner continued:
“This USB problem is one of the most urgent matters for IT departments. That is a statement of fact as 33% of IT staff place it at the top of their agenda.

Losing intellectual property on an open, unsecured USB flash drive could be disastrous for any organisation. There are good reasons to protect trade secrets, aggregated data or other sensitive records, as doing so ensures shareholder value, public confidence, and internal productivity.”
