In Pictures: Security mistakes right at your workspace

This workspace contains 10 security mistakes. Can you spot the errors that put confidential information at risk?

Open computer

When you leave your desk, do you lock your computer to ensure no one else can look at what you are working on?

In this example, an employee has left their computer open to an email screen with details about travel expenses and other corporate financial information.

Takeaway: While it's not always practical to constantly lock and close applications (or no one would get anything done), certain applications and documents should be given special attention and closed, minimized or locked before leaving a desk. A short auto-lock time for your screensaver can help.
