Secure start-up systems (SSS) are security tools which help prevent unauthorized programs from taking over your computer when it boots. These security tools can be found on modern PCs and laptops, and are part of UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) technology.

Encryption & Code Signing

Developing your website or mobile app securely is the key to protecting your digital start-up from malicious hackers. This means that you must ensure the code upon which your products are built is thoroughly tested, developed and thoroughly checked.

Employee Agreements

As your business grows it is important to develop clear employment contracts, and offer letters to protect yourself against legal issues that may arise when you hire new staff. It’s important that all your employees know exactly what’s expected of them. This is especially true when it comes to protecting company 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 achieved using a shortcut or a firmware installation 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 an encryption password to prevent others from starting your Mac up from removable or external media, as well as controlling whether you Mac can boot from a network volume.
