Employees at your company have been told to lock their computers whenever they leave them. However, as you walk around the office, you see unlocked computers with no one using them. What are the TWO steps that you should take to mitigate this problem?

A Enforce screen saver locks after a short time of inactivity.

The problem could be mitigated by setting up each computer to lock the screen saver after a brief time of inactivity. Users may quickly enter their password and log in again when they were still at their workstation but engaged in something else. It is always beneficial to educate personnel about network and data security. Although firing them would be a harsh action, it might be the company policy based on the environment. You wouldn't want to risk losing the employee's work by setting the PC to shut down after two minutes of inactivity.
