Have you ever read the side of a shampoo bottle? It explains to us precisely how to wash our hair. The instructions direct us to wet, lather, rinse, and repeat if necessary.

#1 most necessary security measure to follow in any company:

  • Lock your Computer: This should never be an option. If you work on a computer, laptop, tablet, or phone; they belong to the company and should be treated with the upmost care. When you are done using it or step away, lock it! While using a Windows system it is simple. Press the [windows key] flag button and the letter L at the same time. This will automatically lock it. You can also choose to press ctrl-alt-del at the same time and choose ‘lock this computer’. Another option is to go to your desktop, right click and choose ‘personalize’, from there go to screen saver and set your wait time to 1-3 minute while putting a check mark in the box that reads ‘on resume, display logon screen’.

o    Keeps your files safe. They cannot be tampered with or deleted if your system is locked.

o    Protects confidential data from being accessed or downloaded.
