Security and data protection

Maintaining a high level of security on site is essential for all employees and the company.

Every company should be aware of the risks of private, important, company and personal information being lost or stolen. Sensitive information such as company data, employee’s personal records or local resident’s contact details should be given a high level of attention and consideration both on-site and in the office.

The following examples are a few tips on how to better raise security and data protection standards:

  • Passwords should be activated for all devices, particularly handheld devices such as tablets as they may travel through various hands;
  • When temporarily leaving a computer or other device, the lock screen should be activated to hide any information that is present;
  • An automatic screensaver should be set up that commences after a short period of inactivity, this will lock the screen if the device has been left unattended;
  • If you are leaving a computer or other device for long periods of time, it is best to shut it down. This also adds the benefit of saving power;
  • Cupboards, drawers or other storage locations that are holding sensitive information should be locked if possible when left unsupervised.
