Lock Your Computer!


Here at WyldLynx we take security very seriously.

A common misconception about security is that 'if the big things are taken care of, the small things will take care of themselves'.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

For the past several months, we have been running our own 'guerilla' campaign, designed to inform people of the dangers of leaving their computer unlocked while away from their desk.  Many of our special post-it notepads have been distributed, and whenever someone with a pad notices a screen that has been left unattended while still logged in and ready for use, the screen will cop a nice note smack bang in the middle, to be seen upon return.

Having your screen tagged in this way - a sure sign that you need to be made aware of the dangers! - has, until now, been the only way to find the link to our hidden security information page.  This has resulted in many visits to the page, where these unwitting recipients hopefully learned a thing or two about the dangers of leaving their computer unlocked.

If you haven't had a post-it stuck on your screen, you have either been dilligent and secure, or there was no-one close by with one of our post-it pads handy when you walked away.

In the interests of getting good information out there, we can now reveal our page here for the first time - Lock Your Computer.

Here you will find some of the ways the simple act of leaving your computer unattended can cause severe problems for you, your family and your organisation, as well as some excellent online resources to help you reduce your risk in this increasingly insecure, online world.

If you would like to learn even more about security issues and their remedies, visit our Information Security page, or  contact us today via our website contact page or email  us at contact@wyldlynx.com.au.

We can even arrange a presentation from our resident information security expert for your organisation - we can promise it will be eye-opening!
