Security Tip - Protecting Your Government Owned Equipment and Personally Identifiable Information

Agency workplaces and telework provide great flexibility in how we accomplish our jobs, that flexibility requires each of us to be diligent in how we properly handle and secure our Government owned equipment and Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

Below are some tips that each of you should make part of your daily routine whether you are physically in the office or working remotely.  Please take a moment to review them carefully.

Top Tips for Keeping PII and Government Owned Equipment Secure in a Flexible Workplace:

  • Lock your computer when you step away
  • Secure your agency issued laptop and other mobile devices
  • Protect and secure documents when you send them to the printer
  • Don’t leave documents that have PII out on your desk when you’re not there
  • Lock all PII documents in a secure storage unit when you’re not actively working with them
  • Encrypt all PII being sent outside of your agency network  

 

Every federal employee has a responsibility to make sure their Government owned equipment and sensitive or Personally Identifiable Information is secured.
