We have lots of digital assets on the road, cell phone, notebook, removable storage media etc.
There are stringent controls to secure the information inside these containers such as encryption, multi-factor authentication, location awareness, MDM, forced full tunnel VPN.
Careless end users might just defeat all these controls if they are unaware they are the biggest threat in protecting information.
These simple steps could help to secure:
- Remove your login session, i.e. logout without waiting the inactivity time out
- Lock your screen even if you are just turn around your head
- Take with you the digital asset and don’t leave it unattended
