Controlling access to your devices is a key aspect of securing your moderate and high risk information. Require a PIN/password at startup to gain access to the device and user account. Enable a screen lock that requires a password to unlock after 10 minutes of inactivity.
Don't forget your mobile devices! You may have more information on them than you think if you use apps like dropbox for your files or receive emails on your phone with potentially risky information.
