Gartner recently released a report saying that the "unauthorised and uncontrolled use of portable storage devices" could pose a security risk. You don't say?What ever should we do if we didn't have the folks over at Gartner to write reports and tell us, the pedestrian technologists we are, about a four-old-problem. What's next a report saying that guns in the wrong hands kill people? Gartner suggests being very careful about preventing the use of unauthorized devices.... Don't look now but that photo copier in the corner is pretty effective if you want to get corporate secrets out the door.
