USB memory sticks 'most common method' of off-site data transfer13 June 2011 12:19:27
When transferring data from their office to an off-site location, UK staff members are most commonly adopting USB memory sticks in order to achieve this, it has been suggested.
Some 25 per cent of the office workers who were included in a study published by Fasthosts Internet reported that they store off-site data with the aid of such memory sticks.
Meanwhile, 24 per cent of respondents revealed that they are making use of work email accounts to transfer data out of the office to another location.
However, after highlighting the trend for USB memory sticks to be adopted by workers, the firm warned: "Due to their small size, USB sticks are easily lost when off-site or travelling."
Discussing the data transfer methods of UK staff, Fasthosts Internet marketing director Steve Holford noted: "There is clearly a lot of inconsistency within workforces and so businesses are being put unnecessarily at risk."
