Secure Start Up Systems
Secure start up systems are security tools that help prevent unauthorized software from taking control of your computer at boot time. These security tools can be found on modern PCs and laptops, and are part of UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) technology.
Encryption and Code Signing
Developing your mobile app, website or software securely will help keep your digital startup safe. This means ensuring that the code on which your products are based is developed, tested and thoroughly checked to ensure it doesn’t contain any vulnerabilities or flaws.
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’s important that all your employees know exactly what’s expected of them. This is especially true when it comes to protecting company 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.
