In this final instalment of a three-part series, here are more ways that staff can maintain the right level of security when using their devices in the summer holidays:
Make Use Of Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Enable 2FA for all your important accounts. This adds an extra layer of security, making it harder for unauthorised users to gain access.
Limit Sharing of Location Information. Be careful about sharing your location on social media. This can alert potential thieves that you’re not at home or in your office.
Lock Your Devices. Always lock your devices when you’re not using them, even if you’re just stepping away for a few minutes. This can prevent unauthorised access.
Disable Auto-Connect. Turn off the auto-connect feature on your devices to prevent them from automatically connecting to public Wi-Fi networks, which can be insecure.
Monitor Your Accounts. Regularly check your financial and digital accounts for any suspicious activity. Early detection can help mitigate damage.
