Securing the Workstation

Educate your users about the importance of securing their own workstation.

  • Use a less-privileged user account for everyday use and use services like User Account Control (UAC) when you need administrative rights
  • Stay up-to-date with all operating system patches and updates
  • Install anti-virus software, and keep it up to date
  • Enable firewall software
  • Use strong passwords
  • While it seems obvious, make sure computers are in a safe place that cannot be readily accessed by people outside the organization
  • Remove unnecessary Windows (and other operating system) services
  • Use secure system configurations settings (including browser settings)
  • Make periodic backup copies of any data that is essential to your organization
  • Never click on a link within an email or visit a web site unless you know the web site is reputable and safe
  • Logoff or lock the screen when leave your computer unattended; use a password protected screen saver
