RX is Limiting USB Storage
Fact: Ransomware is a type of malware that infects devices by encrypting files and demanding a ransom to decrypt them.
Why are we telling you this?
Over the last few years, Ransomware exploded to the point where it is considered to be the most serious cyber threat to most businesses.
Fact: One of the most common ways that a device can be infected is by a USB storage device.
What are we doing about this?
RX is currently running a Ransomware Resilience program where we are reviewing the security of devices on our network.
As part of these efforts to protect RELX confidential/restricted data, and to prevent malware, RX plans to limit USB storage in the coming weeks.
Don’t worry... This will not prevent you from using USB-connected devices that do not store data, such as keyboard, mouse, headset, even your phone for charging.
How are we supporting you? We want to make sure that you have the correct tools to share files safely and effectively. Here is a guide on what’s being blocked and what’s not - Visit the Knowledge Store here.
