Use of External Drives
eLearning / Online Course
We’ve all had those absent-minded moments where we’ve forgotten something vital, right? Locking your keys inside your home is easily done, but at least it only affects you. Imagine then, if you’d misplaced or lost something a bit more, well, disruptive. For example, leaving an external drive with customer data on it on public transport could cause quite a problem.
Why do people continue to use external drives anyway? These days, there are other options such as cloud storage. But which is safer? We need to take a deeper look at why external drives are still in use and how we can keep these important little devices as safe and secure as possible. This course will help with that.
