Portable Storage Policy

Originally Published:
Jul 2006

Portable storage devices--including flash memory-based "thumb" drives, portable audio players (such as Apple Corp.'s iPod) and external hard drives--present numerous and significant security threats. As such, this Portable Storage Policy ensures organization data and systems are protected as required by legal and industry regulations.

The Portable Storage Policy exists to ensure all organization information, computers, and systems are protected from viruses, unauthorized data duplication, and other security risks. This file includes a policy you can customize to meet your needs as well as a risk assessment spreadsheet you can use to judge just how much your organization is at risk by not having this policy in place.
