We’ve all heard the saying, “there’s no such thing as free lunch” and especially when it comes to cyber security you can never be too safe. Hackers have caught up to the safety measures companies have put in place to secure their operations and they have now devised tactics to get unassuming persons to fall prey.
The best thing is to avoid using pen drives on machines and rather use verified cloud-based sharing sites when needed but if you absolutely must use a pen drive; don’t use pen drives from sources you can’t trust! The consequences can be very dire – from shutting down an entire operation, and holding customer data as ransom to leaking sensitive corporate information.
Let’s be wary, better to be safe than sorry.
