  • Addressing risk areas in government.

    Government employees must be especially vigilant at keeping the public’s information private. From government buildings and offices, to commuters and workers on the go, there are a number of areas that are particularly susceptible to visual hacking.

    Key risk areas:

     

    • Receptions and public areas
    • Open office floor plans
    • Open cubicles
    • Shared workspaces
    • Offices near windows
    • Computerised testing areas
    • Devices used by mobile employees
