It’s Not Confidential–It’s Just Important

Important Message

Over the years I’ve noticed that some organizations sometimes confuse “important” documents with “confidential” documents. True, some important documents actually contain sensitive information, like company proprietary information or even client information and those should be labeled as “Confidential.” But not all important documents are confidential.

Case in point: at one company, the employee handbook was updated and one of the updates included a “Confidential” label on every page. When I saw that, I asked why the handbook had “Confidential” labels throughout. I pointed out that confidential documents need to be protected with the highest levels of security including encryption as well as [click to continue…]

How to Set Up a Personal VPN

Private VPN

One way to prevent other people from being able to eavesdrop on your online transactions is by ensuring that your browser is using HTTPS (as I describe in my ebook “More Information Security for Small Businesses”). Another way to protect your transactions is to use a personal Virtual Private Network or VPN. As you might gather from the name, a VPN is a safe way to extend your private (and presumably secure) network across the Internet.

When using a VPN, your computer will connect to your private network over the Internet via strong authentication and encryption or tunneling protocols. Once connected, you’ll get the benefit of access to your private networked systems such as file servers as well as the benefit of operating from a secure network versus the non-secure Internet. With a VPN, a remote worker could securely access the company network file servers in Seattle, for instance, from a coffee shop in Chicago.

If you have to remotely access a personal or business network, using a VPN connection is the secure way to go. VPNs can also be used to [click to continue…]
