Update your password before you go so it doesn't expire
Our password policy means that if you are lucky enough to have a few weeks of leave and have not recently changed your password – there is a high chance that your password will expire over the Christmas period so please try and update your password before you leave.
It is always good practice to make sure that your password is not the same across all services, Facebook passwords and internet banking passwords should NOT be the same.
Update your PC
Make sure your computer is up-to-date to make certain that you have the latest and greatest security patches.
Unfortunately, there are quite a few people\entities out there that prey on people this time of year.
During this time of year be quite mindful of the emails you are receiving to personal email accounts and its always a good idea to not open emails unless you are either expecting an email from an organisation\person or you trust the sender
With the mad rush to get out of the office for the start your break, please make sure that all sensitive documents and other company files are locked away either in a cabinet or behind a lock screen on your devices.
Out of office
As you get ready to wrap up for the year you will no doubt be looking forward to setting up that out of office and heading out to enjoy the Christmas \ Summer break.
It’s important to remember though that if you are someone that works from home or for a smaller business – the out of office message is quite a clear “hey, nobody is in the building” message.
