Removable Media Device UAP

    I was wondering what types of acceptable use policies people have
    regarding removable media devices. A client of mine has approached me
    as they had an issue with an employee using a simple USB memory stick
    to download customer data. The employee was fired when they discovered
    the issue, however they are now concerned about other media devices
    connected to their systems. First I am trying to work with him on
    establishing how far they want to go to block these devices as it
    appears a few employees need to connect smart phones etc as part of
    their business, so just shutting down USB ports via the BIOS for
    example is not an option. They also want to be able to log what data a
    user downloads if they have write access to a particular device.

    First I am wondering what sort of policies folks have in place. Second
    I am wondering how you enforce them, their network is predominantly
    Windows, with a few Unix servers.

    Thank You
