/EINPresswire.com/IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in cybersecurity and data protection information, standards, books, tools, training and consultancy, has reported that the 3M Black Privacy Filters for desktops and laptops can help small and large organisations effectively address visual security issues: www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3781.

The filters which are also available in gold – 3M Gold Privacy Filters for desktops and laptops – serve to prevent those prying eyes in non-secure locations seeing your confidential data. Organisations buying bulk volumes can make a significant saving on the price of a single item. More information can be found online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3781 or via telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750.

Shoulder surfing is a common problem these days and may also be a cause of data breaches. High-traffic areas, including public locations and open offices, pose a particular risk to confidential information. In ISO27001, control 9.2.1 states ‘Equipment shall be sited or protected to reduce the risks from environmental threats and hazards, and opportunities for unauthorised access’.

The 3M privacy filters employ micro-louvre blackout privacy technology to prevent anyone viewing your screen from either side, whilst allowing you to continue to view your screen with ease.

The 3M privacy filters use a unique attachment system which allows the filter to remain inside the laptop, even when closed. It also means the privacy filter can be easily slipped out, so that you can do a demonstration on your laptop or desktop screen.

A video demonstrating the use and the benefits of using the filters can be seen on the IT Governance YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boVvVrPMv3s.

Organisations can order 3M black privacy filters for laptops and desktops online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3781. Purchases can be made directly with the friendly, helpful IT Governance service centre team on telephone number +44 (0)845 070 1750. Larger organisations can make purchases with a purchase order either by telephone or by e-mail to [email protected]
