How to Secure Your Workstation


Today, no organization needs to be taught the importance of cyber security. However, in many cases, the security considerations are only extended towards server and network. Workstation security is largely dependent on anti-virus software‘s. Yes, network and server security are vital, but your workstations can potentially contain a huge amount of professional and personal data. If any of your hard drives are breached through the network, this data will be compromised.

This is why it is important to secure your workstations. Let us see how you can achieve this objective –

Increase Employee Awareness

Most of the security breaches occur due to the lack of precaution on the employees’ part. Many of them leave their workstations unattended, or share a common password for convenience. However, this lax approach is all it takes for a visitor to access your PC and steal information. Encourage your employees to always lock their system when they leave their place, and to use strong passwords to minimize chances of a breach.

Encrypt your Files

By encrypting your files, you will be able to protect sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands, even if your system is breached.

Invest in Secure Devices

The best way to secure your workstation is to acquire one that will do half your work. The HP Z series workstations are protected by all the HP security services essential to protect your hardware. Features like HP Sure Start, HP Sure Run and HP Sure Recover protect and self-heal your BIOS, keep your critical applications running even if malware tries to shut them, and fortify your authentication systems.
