Heathrow Airport Becomes The Next Highly Sensitive Data Breach From A Lost, Unsecured USB Stick

USB Stick left on a sidewalkEvery year it seems another unsecured USB stick becomes the subject of a highly sensitive data breach in an environment that should have been restricted to hardware encrypted USB drives.  Flash drives are convenient because they can transfer information quickly, easily and efficiently and there is a time and place for non-encrypted flash drives, but a critical secure environment is not one of them.  Kanguru Defender® hardware encrypted drives are made for high-security environments. The incident at Heathrow Airport once again underscores the importance for organizations transferring highly sensitive information to restrict and secure the data on encrypted, password-protected USB.
