Tip 70 - Remember to Lock Your Computer

Published: 9/26/2012 8:07 AM
It’s important to make sure that the organization's data is safe and secure at all times. Locking your workstation when you step away is one of the simplest security steps you can take.
​There are two ways to lock your computer:
1. Hold down Ctrl + Alt + Delete at the same time, then click “Lock Computer” at the top left.
2. Some Windows machines have a Windows logo key on the keyboard. The workstation can be locked by holding down the Windows logo key and pushing “L” at the same time.
 
When you return to your workstation, hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete to log in. All programs, websites and documents will still be open and readily available as you left them.
