Flash drives stolen with thousands of students’ information

Two USB flash drives with approximately 26,000 students’ information stored on them were stolen from a Washoe County School District office during a recent burglary, according to a Washoe news report.

A spokesman for the school district’s office said from now on the school district will make sure all information on any flash drives is encrypted so it is not accessible if it does end up in the wrong hands.

We recently sat down with Neville Pattinson, vice president of government affairs and business development at Gemalto North America, to discuss some of the concerns surrounding these memory sticks and some of the precautions organizations can take.
