Secure Start Up Systems

Secure start-up systems (SSS) are security tools which help prevent unauthorized programs from taking over your computer when it boots. These security features are available on most modern PCs and Laptops. They are a part of UEFI Technology (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface).

Encryption Code Signing

It is important to develop your website, app or software in a safe manner if you want to protect your startup from malicious hacker attacks. This means that you must ensure the code upon which your products are built is thoroughly tested, developed and thoroughly checked.

Employee Agreements

As your business grows, it’s important that you develop clear employment contracts and offer-letters to protect yourself from legal issues that can arise when you hire new employees. It is important that your employees understand the expectations you have for them, especially in terms of protecting your company’s data and information.

Disabling Secure Boot

Many devices (including those that run Windows 10) have a built in system that allows the firmware configuration to disable Secure Boot. This can be achieved using a shortcut or a firmware installation utility.

Startup Security Utilities

If your Mac is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip you can use a feature of Startup Security Utility to ensure that your Mac will always boot from your designated disk and from a trusted, legitimate operating system. This includes setting up a firmware password that prevents someone from booting from removable or external media and controlling whether your Mac is able to boot from network volumes.
