The Ubiquitous USB Stick (Flash Drives)

Image of a USB stick (flash drive)
This includes USB attached portable drives. Large organisations will typically prevent users having access to USB ports for security. This is not feasible in small volunteer led organisations. So what to do?

  1. Always scan USB sticks and drives for viruses and malware (you do of course run scheduled anti-virus checks on your PCs and laptops regularly, don’t you?).
  2. If you know how, to set your devices up so USB sticks are scanned automatically.
  3. Beware shared USB sticks and drives or third-party ones passed to you with data on – you simply cannot account for where they have been and what sate the other persons systems are in. There is a high probability of passing on (receiving) a virus.
  4. Out of courtesy whenever you pass a USB stick to someone else please scan for viruses first.

A bit about Steve

You may have come here looking for some help with a web site. If you have come here for my sailing, woodworking, cycling or family history pages pop over here.

OK I build web sites - usually for small businesses, community or volunteer groups. I know what it can be like for you - unsure about costs, what you get for your money, will it be worth it? I will be absolutley clear right up front. There will be no hidden charges and you will get my full support. You may not even have to pay anything until your site goes live. Your satisfaction is my focus. I can provide great references from other satisfied customers. There is nothing to lose by contacting me - I won't hassle you afterwards. I like to keep it worry free for you.
