It is critical that end-users understand the importance of their role as it relates to security.
In general, end-users must take the same precautions they would with other secure online transactions, such as e-commerce and banking.
End-users must ensure they:
- are using a secure network with firewall protection.
- are using a modern, up-to-date browser; and an operating system that features integrated anti-virus and anti-malware software.
- use a unique password that is a minimum of eight characters in length and utilizes a combination of words, numbers, symbols, and both upper and lower-case letters.
- never write their password down or share it with anyone.
- take the same precautions entering email addresses in AuditDashboard that they would if sending an email.
- logout of AuditDashboard, lock their system, and secure their computer when left unattended.
- monitor and review access rights to ensure access is restricted if an end-user becomes disassociated with an engagement, firm, or client.
To govern the behavior of its end-users, AuditDashboard has established an Acceptable Use Policy. It is important that end-users read and understand the policy.
In short, customers trust AuditDashboard with their data. In exchange, AuditDashboard trusts that end-users will use their services responsibly.
