I am a software professional. Our company has provided everyone with a laptop. I always lock my system whenever I go out. Last day I forgot to lock the system when I went home. Next day when I came to the office, I found my laptop opened and its settings changed. I think someone has tried to hack it but I am not sure about it because none of the data is removed. Is hacking an easy task? How can we know whether our system is hacked or not? Now I think it's time to install a hack-proof security system. While surfing to know more about it I came across an interesting article on commercial security monitoring services that speaks on how to make your security systems hack-proof. I found that article to be quite interesting. Has anyone installed such a hack-proof security system? Can anyone share your experience if you have installed it?
Waiting for your valuable suggestions.
Thanks in advance.

There's no such thing as a hack proof system. Consider the major companies that have been hacked. There are systems that make hacking extremely difficult, but only if you use them. Forgetting make even the best system useless.

Keep in mind that more protection usually means more cost. We're talking about big bucks here.

In general, there's no easy way to tell if your laptop has been hacked. Someone could have installed hidden spyware to capture your keystrokes. Nothing would be missing or appear different on your laptop.

Do you have a spyware detector?

Hey. I am also concern about the hacking problem. We are the fingerprint door lock manufacturer from China. We would like to make our fingerprint door lock with mobile APPs or WIFI connection. But I have seen some negative comments about the hacking problem for that. Can anyone help on this? Do you guys think it's better to remove the APP or WIFI connection function?

Thank you.

Hack-proof security system? Sounds like one of their marketing terms.

I find it rather curious that a "software professional" should be asking such fundamental questions. Other than that, given sufficient time, every lock or a password can be broken.
