Encrypted USB Memory Sticks - Pros & Cons
Right, I'm looking to get a new stock of USB Pen Drives in school (as I've run out of spare ones now) and I know that encrypted is probably the best way to go, given you can tell staff members not to store pupil data on non-secure devices, but they still will, so I thought, encrypted drives then they have to.
Now, preferably looking at Hardward Encrypted Drives, but the problem (as we all know) is passwords, therefore I'm wondering what thoughts are for and against encrypted drives, and whether people know of any decent managed systems for encrypted drives, which obviously have their perks.
Personally, I have nothing against saying:
(obviously with a bit better wording in there, but you get the jist).
Here is your new pen drive, it is encrypted to protect any student data you may carry on it. Ensure you only use it for school use. I have set you password as being ..... and will keep a note of this. Should you change this password and then forget it, the only way to make the stick useable again is to format it, meaning you will lose any data on this drive.
