Protecting and securing your IT equipment is as basic as it gets, but complicated to get right and maintain usability.
At Alchemy we can advise on:
Physical Security: protecting the device from physical threats like theft, tampering, or damage. It includes measures like using locks, security cables, biometric access controls, and keeping devices in secure locations.
Operating System Security: Ensuring the operating system (OS) is up-to-date with the latest security patches is critical. Regular updates help to fix vulnerabilities and security loopholes that could be exploited by attackers.
Application Security: This involves securing the applications installed on the device. It includes using reputable app sources, updating apps regularly, and avoiding apps from unknown or untrusted sources.
Data Encryption: Encrypting sensitive data stored on the device prevents unauthorized users from accessing or understanding the information even if they gain physical access to the device.
Ransomware Protection: Installing Enhanced Detection & Response systems on local devices ensure ‘unusual’ events aka “Ransomware Attacks” are shut down before your entire data set is encrypted and you’re subject to an decryption bill from unscrupulous agents.
