USB portable storage devices (or "sticks" as otherwise known) have become very popular as a handy means of carrying around your data, but what happens when you misplace the device? How safe is your data? OK, you could encrypt all the files on the device, but many users will simply not bother.
Securing data when it leaves an organisation is always a problem. Despite user education, a laptop can all too easily be left in a cab and, if not properly secure, information is left in the clear for all to see. Even when software encryption is used, there is still a chance that it can be decrypted.
