USB Data Theft Monitoring Platform


Employees can turn rogue and steal confidential data. Even network firewalls will fail to detect data theft done via USB disks.


I made a USB disk monitoring system that can help to prevent data breaches by alerting users when an unauthorized USB disk is attached to a computer. It also identifies what data is copied to/from the USB devices.


The system could monitor and track the use of USB devices on a computer, and alert the user or network administrator if any unauthorized devices were connected or if any suspicious activity is detected. This can help prevent data breaches and protect the security of the information stored on the computer.  such as those related to data protection and privacy.

This project became the basis for my Ph.D. Research on insider threats.
