Things to avoid for a more physically secure environment.

SHOULDER SURFING
Stay aware of the people around you and who is able to see your monitors.
Sensitive information could be in view of visitors or vendors.
Consider readjusting monitors or using privacy screens to make sure sensitive information isn’t being viewed by curious eyes!

TAILGATING

Be aware of who you’re letting in behind you.

SENSITIVE PAPER LAYING AROUND
Maybe a form needs shredded. Maybe you were reviewing a chart and got distracted. Regardless, hard copies of sensitive information should always be
stowed safely away!

PROPPING DOORS
