Ensure that laptops are secured with a cable on your desk.

Carry the key to your file cabinets or desk drawer on you, either in the pocket of your clothing or on a wristband.

Turn off your computer at night or protect access to your personal or confidential information on your computer by using a password.

Empty out your pockets prior to hanging your coat in a public closet.

Ensure that the entrance door to your space is kept closed at all times.

Familiarize yourself with all emergency exits.

If you are alone and intending to remain in your office after normal office hours, please notify the Security officer stationed in your building.

Engage in a community watch effort and report suspicious individuals or activity to Security immediately.
