World Password Day - May 2nd | 5 tips for passwords.



Here are some tips to help your staff with your password policy.


Tip 1: Use Complex Passwords

  • Think beyond birthdays or pets names.

  • Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.

Tip 2: Don’t Reuse Passwords

  • Keep your passwords unique for different apps.

  • A data leak on one website can make all your applications vulnerable.

Tip 3: Leverage Password Managers

  • Remembering passwords is hard.

  • Password managers securely store them and can even generate unique passwords for your applications.

Tip 4: Enable Two-factor Authentication (2FA)

  • Even strong locks can be broken.

  • Enable 2FA on all your cloud apps to make it harder for criminals to gain access.

Tip 5: Beware of Imposters

  • Watch out for phishing emails impersonating familiar contacts.

  • Clicking on links in these emails could put your business at risk.
