Secure start up systems help to prevent unauthorized software taking control of your PC at boot time. These security programs are included in most modern PCs or laptops.

Encryption and 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. It is important to make sure that the code used in your digital products has been thoroughly tested and checked.

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 essential that your employees are aware of what is expected from them, particularly when it comes time to protect your company’s data and information.

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 can be done with a hotkey, or by using a firmware configuration utility.

* Startup Security Utilities

If your Mac has the Apple T2 Security Chip, you can use a feature in Startup Security Utility to make sure your Mac always starts up from your designated startup disk, and always from a legitimate, trusted operating system. This includes setting a password for the firmware to prevent anyone from starting up your Mac from removable media or external devices, and controlling if your Mac can boot off network volumes.
