Secure Start Up Systems

Secure start ups are security systems that prevent unauthorized applications from taking control of a computer during boot. These security tools are found on PCs and laptops that use UEFI technology (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface).

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 company grows, you should develop clear employment agreements and offer letters in order to protect yourself from any legal issues that could arise when you hire a new employee. 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, even those running Windows 10, have an integrated system that allows for Secure Boot to be disabled in the firmware settings. This can be done with a hotkey, or by using a firmware configuration utility.

Startup Security Utilities

If your Mac comes with an Apple T2 Security Chip (or similar), you can make use of a feature within Startup Security Utility that will ensure your Mac starts from the designated startup disk and always from an operating system that is trusted. This includes setting the firmware password in order to prevent someone else from booting up from removable media. It also allows you to control whether your Mac will boot from network drives.
