Kingston's Message on Ensuring Important Data is Kept Secure and Private, Anywhere and Anytime
Sydney, Australia: July 12 2010 - The transfer of sensitive data via a USB Flash drive can pose an enormous risk for personal users and organizations alike. If the personal drive lacks a data protection function than any private information stored on the USB can easily be accessed by anyone who may come across it.
The loss of a USB drive, reported in Hong Kong news recently, highlighted the quintessential importance of data protection. A clerk at the School of General Nursing of Kowloon Hospital stored the personal data of around 300 student nurses in a personal USB Flash drive for daily contact purposes. On the evening of June 12, the clerk found she lost the USB drive at a LRT station.
The Nursing School was faced with the task of informing and apologising to all pupil nurses concerned. Kowloon Hospital is investigating the incident and will take the appropriate disciplinary actions for the concerned clerk. After this case, Kowloon Hospital has reminded all crew that they must strictly follow the guidelines on personal data protection and all data must be stored in encrypted storage devices.
Simple mistakes such as these can happen at any organisation at any place across the world and just as easily confidential and personal information could become available to anybody, anywhere, who finds it.
For keeping your important data safe, Kingston has presented secure solutions that are tailored to your needs, from high-end to entry level, including DataTraveler 5000, DataTraveler Vault-Privacy Edition, DataTraveler Locker+, and DataTraveler Locker.
