SB049 Covers webcam when not in use

Devices that have been compromised can have their webcams accessed. To limit further breaches to privacy and data, webcam covers should be used whenever cameras are not in use.

Why is it important?

Cameras can be used to gain valuable information and gain an insight into a device's physical environment. Using a webcam cover is important as it helps to protect privacy and data.
