Removable Storage Policy

Where possible removable storage should not be used to transfer data to/from a client. All attempts to transfer data to or a from a client should be sent securely and electronically where possible.

In the event that data is required to be sent via removable storage, the client will be responsible for providing the storage medium and this must be delivered by OMS staff or via secure courier (eg. Royal Mail Special Delivery Signed For).

OMS should not use storage devices belonging to anyone but the client to store client data to reduce the disk of casual data breaches involving temporary storage or intentional removal of data. This will also reduce the potential of viruses or other malicious exploits.
