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 of Code Signing

It is important to develop your website, app or software in a safe manner if you want to protect your startup from malicious hacker attacks. 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.

Employee Agreements

As your business expands, it is essential that you create clear employment contracts and letter of offer to protect you from legal issues which can arise when hiring new employees. It’s also essential to make sure that all of your employees understand what is expected of them, especially when it comes to protecting your company’s information and data.

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 is done via a hotkey or firmware setup utility.

Startup Security Utilities

If your Mac is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip you can use a feature of Startup Security Utility to ensure that your Mac will always boot from your designated disk and from a trusted, legitimate operating system. This includes setting up a firmware password that prevents someone from booting from removable or external media and controlling whether your Mac is able to boot from network volumes.
