Recommendations

The company’s information must be secured against any illegitimate access, and the same applies to personal data, of which we must guarantee the privacy, the integrity and the availability. Unlike computers, common devices connected to Internet are often protected against unauthorized access only in a limited way, and hackers can contaminate them. Besides it is common to be able to access those devices thanks to their standard passwords, and pretty often, these passwords are not changed after the setting up, as far as it is possible to change them. An application for personal use should in no instance be set up on a professional device without the company’s consent.

Basic principles

art. 7 LPD: safety (privacy, availability, integrity)
