Several departments in a corporation have a critical need for routinely moving data from one system to another
using removable storage devices. Senior management is concerned with data loss and the introduction of
malware on the network. Which of the following choices BEST mitigates the range of risks associated with the
continued use of removable storage devices?
Remote wiping enabled for all removable storage devices
Full-disk encryption enabled for all removable storage devices
A well-defined acceptable use policy
A policy which details controls on removable storage use

company has to have a comprehensive policy which details the controls of the use of removable to mitigate the
range of risks that are associated with the use of these devices.
