Yeah, but apparently they dont seem to mind as much if you, say, copy all of the blueprint files onto your phone via usb.

Eventually your company is going to have to face reality the same way mine did - if you really wanted to smuggle information out there is nothing they can reasonably do to stop you - technology is just too small and too powerful these days. Even a strip search at the door wouldnt be enough.

The only way forward is to educate your workforce in the use of such devices so that they are less likely to do stupid things by mistake, like, i dunno, leaving an unencrypted usb stick full of military secrets on the train.
