Secure start up systems are security tools that help prevent unauthorized software from taking control of your computer at boot time. These security programs are included in most modern PCs or laptops.
Encryption & Code Signing
To protect your digital startup from malicious hackers, you must develop your website, mobile application or software in a secure manner. This means that the code which is used to create your products must be thoroughly tested and developed.
As your business grows, it’s important that you develop clear employment contracts and offer-letters to protect yourself from legal issues that can arise when you hire new employees. It’s essential that your employees are aware of what is expected from them, particularly when it comes time to protect your company’s data and information.
Disabling Secure Boot
Many devices, including those that run Windows 10, have a built-in system that allows you to disable Secure Boot in the firmware configuration. This is done via a hotkey or firmware setup 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 up a firmware password that prevents someone from booting from removable or external media and controlling whether your Mac is able to boot from network volumes.
