Most of us are not concerned about securing data on pen drive until we experience a similar incident. I got to know about this threat when I almost got fired from my job just because I lost my pen drive containing around 35 GBs of official data. At first it wasn't a big deal since I have a habit of keeping everything backed up on my PC but then couldn't neglect the risk of my drive getting into wrong hands. That was the last day when I kept my data unsecured on a portable drive.

We hear thousands of similar stories daily on internet from our friends, colleagues but never give an ear to them just because we think we are too smart to lose this little thing. Mishaps can happen anytime with anyone, why take the unnecessary risk?
