Tech tip – lock your computer screen in seconds

Going away from your computer?  Then make sure you lock your computer screen.

Leaving your screen unlocked could mean other employees accessing the information they are not allowed to see or if your computer is in a public area like a reception a customer might be able to read someone else’s information.  Worse, someone could alter information on a file without you knowing and it could look like you did it, which could leave you in a lot of trouble.


Also, if you have a data breach because you never locked your screen then you could open yourself or the company up to large fines especially under the new GDPR laws coming in to force.


AS it only takes seconds to lock your Windows or Mac computers there are no excuses
