Secure start-up systems are security features that prevent unauthorized software from controlling your computer during boot. These security tools can be found on modern PCs and laptops, and are part of UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) technology.

Encryption of Code Signing

Developing your website, mobile app or software securely is a key to keeping your digital startup safe from malicious hackers. 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 need to create clear employment contract and offer-letters in order to protect against legal issues when hiring new employees. It is also important to ensure that your employees know what they are expected to do, especially when it concerns protecting the information and data of your company.

Disabling Secure Boot

Many devices that run Windows 10 have a builtin system that enables you to disable Secure Boot within the firmware configuration. This is done via a hotkey or firmware setup utility.

Startup Security Utilities

If your Mac has an Apple T2 Security Chip installed, you can use the Startup Security Utility feature to ensure your Mac always boots from your designated boot disk, and only from a legitimate and trusted operating system. 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.
