Privacy: Do You Know Where your USB Ports Have Been Lately?
In this NetworkWorld slide presentation “USB Device: The Big Hole in Network Security” you’ll see that of those businesses surveyed, only 50% have an “approved” USB device for employees. There are some great products out there to help with securing transportable data, such as the Encryptx/Imation SecureFlash solution. But how does this help on mobile devices?
Remember, mobile is different. You need to have access to some real-time context about the device, the user and their location if you want to effectively extend your data privacy policies to mobile users. So not only can you know where your USB ports have been lately, but also your memory card or any other “attached” device or drive.
A little bit of planning and some real-time mobile context can help you effectively manage the 2nd “P” of mobile Web success – Privacy.
