When removable media is an important part of an organisation's operations, more specific rules have been defined for securing removable media and the information they contain.

  • when a removable media is transferred outside the organization, it is impossible to restore its contents if the content is no longer needed;
  • the transfer of media from the organization required a permiossion and all transfers will be logged
  • removable media are protected by encryption when the confidentiality and integrity of the information is important
  • information on removable media is regularly passed on to unused media so that the media does not deteriorate and the data becomes unreadable before that time;
  • multiple copies of valuable data are stored on different media to reduce the risk of simultaneous data damage or loss
