Securing Data flash disk Maybe you often feel worried about the computers and peripheral devices such as hard drives around, flashdisk, CD's, floppy disks, browsers, etc., in the presence of viruses, Trojans, or cyber-crime that can attack your computer. For that, maybe you can consider the following input devices to protect the security of computers and peripherals in the vicinity. Be aware of risk. Most people inadvertently collect viruses and other malware in emails and websites they use shadows. However, lately, the threat comes from the computer removable media, such as floppy disks, not the Internet. As email comes more quickly in the spread of malicious code, to removable media, trouble behind the scenes. Therefore, sometime in the future removable media will not only be a threat, but more powerful than ever as an example a user can threaten computer systems. Disable Windows Auto Play. Most computers are configured to automatically load a particular program when a user insert a CD or plug-ins in the flash drives of their computers. While the Auto Play feature can make some tasks easier, such as listening to CDs or view photos, as well as to facilitate access to malicious code into the flash, which will then impact on your computer. Windows also allows users to block certain file types from loading files automatically. However, blocking Auto Play in Windows is more difficult, and there are way more easy to administer, such as the following: You can download a small program Tweak UI, which has a mini application, the Power Toys. After downloading Tweak UI, click the plus sign next to the setting "My Computer" to display the Auto Play option. You can disable Auto Play in a specific drive, drive type and application type. For best protection, you can choose "types" and unchecked the box "Enable Auto Play" for CDs, DVDs, and removable drives. Use Security Software. For added security, security software can disable the computer USB port simultaneously. This is useful for the business world, which would complicate the transfer of sensitive information. You can configure the security software such as antivirus, to read all the information from the USB port to play the system and possibly malicious code to interfere, before the files are copied into the main system. Beware of the saved file. To ensure that others can not retrieve important information from outside the office, computer owners can track the use of flash drives with one of the security applications, such as firewalls. The safest way is you should not store the data and information are very important in flash. Encrypt Files. If you are forced to store critical data in the flash, then you can use data encryption software to hide data from prying eyes. Encryption software works by collecting data that will be difficult to do without software decoding "key" to open it. So if your flash of a moment lost, your data is still safe. Many flash drives come with encryption software, which allows users to store personal files in a folder that has been encrypted in it.
