Cybercrime is a massive threat to every business on the planet, but there are simple things you can put in place to make your business less attractive to cybercriminals, perhaps the simplest being good practice when it comes to passwords.
Something that makes it only too easy for hackers to gain access to systems and sensitive data that they shouldn’t, is poor password practice. What do we mean by that?
You might have all the data security policies under the sun that have been read and signed by your team, but all it takes is one of your employees to ignore it and set their password as ‘ArsenalRGReat123!’ for everything, get their emails hacked by a cyber criminal who finds them on LinkedIn, looks for them on Facebook, sees them outside the Emirates stadium in an Arsenal shirt and then guesses their password, for you to lose serious money.
Don’t leave the security of your business up to an Arsenal fan. (Arsenal fans, please feel free to replace with a different team of choice!) if you’d like us to talk you through, implement, and provide training for the use of a password manager, give us a call on 01732 617788 or drop us an email to [email protected]. We can chat about what you need, and how you might get the best out of it for your business. Got a jam-packed schedule? Book an appointment with Jon Cross here. Password managers are a really great tool, and we think everyone should be using one!
