MicroSD card security

Hi

We are running BES 4.1.7

Most of our handhelds now have MicroSD cards. Users tend to store various photos etc on here.

I'm worried that:

i) Someone could remove the MicroSD card from a device but leave the device. This way, the user wouldn't know til much later they had lost the card

ii) Someone could steal the whole device inc. MicroSD

Either way, the 3rd party has access to the data on the MicroSD.

Does anyone know how to set it up so that if the MicroSD is removed from the handheld it can't be reused?

At the same time, can genuine users copy data off when they swap their handheld?

i think the short answer is no. theres no way to protect your micro sd. depending on the device there should be apps that will allow you wipe data.

"How to configure an IT policy for encrypting files on a media card"

This is what we use - it encrypts the data on the card so that no one else can read it.
