How about 'sheep-dip' machine where all users have to download any files
first for checking first? One which is not hooked up to the network?
Unwieldy in large organisations maybe...

Has anyone implemented a policy or process to protect networks from
viruses
brought in by users with USB drives, that are not company issued so no
passwords etc.

I'm thinking that AV with on access and write to disc scans should help,
but
I'd like to see some of the policies others have implemented.

Many thanks,
Benny
