Do you ever walk away from your computer, whether it’s to go into a meeting, grab lunch or use the restroom without locking down your computer? You may not think it’s a big deal, but this small action can prevent someone from gaining access to your confidential company information.
Rather than closing or minimizing your windows to hide confidential information from those around you, you can simply lock your computer to hide what’s being displayed on your screen. This is your first line of defense against social engineering attacks. You don’t know exactly who is in your office at any given time, so it’s important that you lock down your device just in case. The easiest way to prevent unauthorized access to your devices is to train yourself, and your team, to lock it when you walk away!
