Portable USB Drives

PSMail Quick Tip: Portable USB drives are very convenient, but caution is needed in order to use them securely.

1. Do not use USB drives or other removable media until you have scanned the files in the drive with antivirus software. A USB can be tampered with and used to embed malicious software.

2. Take great care if you use your USB drive in a public or Internet cafe computer. Your device might receive hidden files containing malicious software that will infect the next computer it comes in contact with.

3. Before putting files on your USB device, password protect your documents. This will help protect your personal information in case you ever lose the device.
