Lumension Security's Audiocast Focuses on Evolving Threats and Countermeasures: Achilles Heel of Data Loss and Theft

Addresses Why Removable Media such as USB Devices Pose the Biggest Security Threat and Outlines Five Steps to Safeguard Vital Information from Data Leakage.

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 17, 2008 -- The development of USB technology including removable media devices has always been about ease of use, connectivity, low cost and performance with little if any thought to security. However, with more than 550 data breaches and more than 30 million records exposed in 2008 as of a November 4 Identity Theft Resource Center report, the growing use of USB devices in data loss and theft incidents has shown that USB devices have today evolved into the Achilles heel of data breaches. In fact, according to research from the Ponemon Institute, 53 percent of organizations would never know what data was on a lost or stolen USB device.

In order to examine this disturbing trend and provide best practices around managing the use of removable media devices, Lumension Security, a leading security management provider, announced the availability of its audiocast, Evolving Threats and Countermeasures - The Achilles Heel of Data Loss and Theft, with Security and Forensics expert Paul Henry. This audiocast:

  • Highlights why removable media devices are the top security threat;
  • Discusses why insiders pose the greatest risk to your information; and
  • Outlines 5 key steps to help safeguard vital information from loss or theft.
