Security is about controlling data. Gone are the days when administrators could build walls around their data. Mobility has broken down those walls. With your data mobile, your best method of protection is through encryption.

TrueCrypt is a free and open source encryption tool, for both Windows,Mac and Linux. It lets you create a password protected encrypted disk, either in a standalone file or on an entire physical partition or volume on a device; which is then mounted, read and written to just like a regular drive. Any file and any device that can be mounted as a filesystem can be used, from regular hard disks to USB flash drives.

I use TrueCrypt to protect my sensitive files on usb flash drives and hard drives, I highly recommend it to protect your data.
