CYBER TIP OF THE WEEK #3 – Separate personal and professional uses
Uses and security measures are different on personal and professional devices (laptops, smartphones, etc.).
The use of personal devices in a professional context can affect the safety of a ship or company data (theft or loss of devices, intrusion, lack of control over the way devices are used, data leakage in case of departure of a crew member, etc.).
It is therefore recommended to separate personal and professional uses :
👉🏼 do not forward professional e-mails to personal mailboxes ;
👉🏼 do not forward professional e-mails to personal mailboxes;
👉🏼 do not store professional data on personal devices (USB drive, smartphone, etc.) or on personal online storage tools;
👉🏼 do not connect personal removable media (USB key, external hard drives, etc.) to the ship’s or the company’s computers.
