Secure or not secure???

Post Posted: Mon Jul 17, 2017 12:48 pm

Hello guys,
I'm newbies here. I'm working as personal assistant in my company. I want to ask a question.I always using company desktop or laptop to access or doing my work task. However, one day i need to do urgent task and i cannot come to the office. I am using my personal laptop to access my task. Then i also worried if other parties can hacked or get the information about my company or my customer personal information. Because in my opinion, i do not sure either my personal laptop were secured.
Please help and give me your ideas, suggestions and options.

1) If your company has a policy on personal devices or remote work: follow it.
2) Do you have anti-virus software on your personal computer?
3) Is your personal computer up to date? Make sure you update Windows and your web browser and add-ons (e.g. Flash, Java, Siverlight).
4) Did you download confidential information?
5) Is your personal computer using full-disk encryption?

The chance of exposure is probably low but you could ultimately put your employer and yourself at risk if you're not following basic security practices.

Forensic Focus is not a free IT security advice platform.

According to you, that is.

If any other member, particularly an esteemed one like tracedf, is willing to provide such free IT security advice on the Forum, what do you propose?

Censoring the post?

Banning the member?

Or is it enough to just post a snarky, uncalled for, comment (like you just did) categorizing what is (or is not) the Forum without any particular authority backing up such a statement?

*clears throat*

But i do agree that there have been many irrelevant posts to the forum, including posts of google searches that miss the point of the thread, and people that need to see a shrink.
