Do you have a computer time out policy that turns off your screen within a few minutes of walking away?

Do you have sticky notes on your monitor or passwords under your keyboard?

Is your smartphone (with your business email on it) password protected?

Are the network jacks in your public areas secure?

Are your monitors turned so that the general public walking by in the hall can’t see your screens?

Physical security is just as important as virtual security.  Stories have been told where thieves make off with recycling or to-be-shredded material and steal employee or customer identity information.  Where is the first place to look for your network password? Under your keyboard!  Being conscious of your physical security is something you can do without any cost.

Take this test and see how well you do.
