Practicing secure computing is everyone's responsibility. The Internet is an unsafe place, and it's increasingly important that all computers have their operating systems fully up-to-date and be running anti-virus and anti-spyware programs (which also must be kept fully up-to-date).
If your computer is not properly secured, hackers can:
Viruses, Trojans, and other malware attack the known weaknesses in operating systems and software via the Internet approximately one million times every day. Hackers around the globe simply want your data, no matter who you are, or what you're protecting, and one infected system can quickly infect others.
Delete, change, and/or steal your data
Install spyware to monitor your keystrokes, emails, IMs, or anything else
Use your computer as part of a 'botnet' to recruit other hacked computers
Steal enough information to impersonate you
A well managed computer is a secure computer. Proper management includes the following:
Keeping your operating system and software up-to-date
Protecting your computer with anti-virus and antispyware software
Being skeptical and careful in what you do, such as opening attachments
While most organizations have a support staff dedicated to managing configurations, installations, and updates to the PC workgroup. Many are utilizing break and fix management, and are not using truly managed systems that would allow for the streamlining of your IT operations, and the reallocation of employee assets to other valuable projects, resulting in direct revenue growth. Our general PC computing options from Lenovo are secure enough for much of the needs of the US government, but for organizations which require a managed solution across multiple locations, we recommend two secure computing solutions based on the requirement.
