Controlling Access to the Computer
No computer will ever be completely secure if people other the than authorized user can physically access it. For maximum security on a computer that is not physically secure (locked safely away), follow all or some of the following security measures:
• Disable the floppy based boot if the computer hardware provides the option. If the computer doesn’t require a floppy disk drive, remove it.
• The CPU should have a case that cannot be opened without a key. The key should be stored safely away from the computer.
• The entire hard disk should be NTFS.
• If the computer doesn’t require network access, remove the network card.
