Screen Savers


Screen savers, once created to save the screen from premature CRT burn out, are now used as a means of both protecting the screen and also for preventing casual shoulder surfing! Screen savers do have a useful and valid Information Security role. Used correctly, they will cut-in, blank the screen from view and require a user or network Administrator password to regain access. Provided the screen saver is set to trigger after (say) 2 minutes of inactivity, and upon user request, it can provide a useful and effective means of diverting casual / opportunistic incidents.
