People may attempt to access an unattended workstation while another user is still logged into the system. The users should never leave their workstation unattended while logged into the system because it makes the system accessible to others who may walk up to the computer. Organizations should set a corporate policy for handling unattended PC sessions. Users are recommended to use the password-locked screen savers feature on all PCs.
