Not Taking Physical Security Into Account
There are devices out there that, when plugged into a computer’s USB port, can extract information or download malware in just a few seconds. Your device’s physical security is often overlooked, but arguably just as important as digital security.
- Don’t leave your laptop or phones unattended when in public places.
- Make sure all of your devices have a password or passcode protecting them.
- And be aware that, with just a few seconds of physical access, an attacker could very well do some damage.
