• Secured equipment. Devices should be locked down to prevent them
from being stolen. One employee’s hard drive could contain all of
your customer information, so it is essential that it be secured.
• Environmental monitoring. An organization’s servers and other high‐
value equipment should always be kept in a room that is monitored
for temperature, humidity, and airflow. The risk of a server failure
rises when these factors go out of a specified range.
• Employee training. One of the most common ways thieves steal
corporate information is to steal employee laptops while employees
are traveling. Employees should be trained to secure their equipment
whenever they are away from the office.
