Securing equipment and premises

Securing equipment

Take good care of equipment that is easy to lose and tempting to steal. Take extra care when travelling.

  • Use a password (NO) or PIN code that you do not share with anyone. Activate two-step verification (NO) (PIN and mobile phone or PIN and security token) for access to confidential information.
  • Make backup copies of things you do not want to lose.
  • Encrypt information you do not wish to share with unauthorised persons.
  • Encrypt the entire hard disk on laptop computers.
  • Switch off laptop computers during transport.
  • Use tracing and remote wipe tools.
  • Lock the screen when you leave it.

Securing premises

  • Do not lend anyone your access card, and keep the code separate from the card.
  • Do not let strangers into locked premises – ask anyone unfamiliar who they are meeting.
  • Shut doors and windows when you leave.
