Secure Start Up Systems

Secure start-up systems are security features that prevent unauthorized software from controlling your computer during boot. These security tools are found on PCs and laptops that use UEFI technology (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface).

Encryption of Code Signing

To protect your digital startup from malicious hackers, you must develop your website, mobile application or software in a secure manner. This means that the code which is used to create your products must be thoroughly tested and developed.

Employee Agreements

As your company grows, you should develop clear employment agreements and offer letters in order to protect yourself from any legal issues that could arise when you hire a new employee. It is also important to ensure that your employees know what they are expected to do, especially when it concerns protecting the information and data of your company.

Disabling Secure Boot

Many devices, even those running Windows 10, have an integrated system that allows for Secure Boot to be disabled in the firmware settings. This can be done with a hotkey, or by using a firmware configuration utility.
