The best security solutions in the world won’t keep your business safe if you’re not ensuring proper password protection.

Password Security

Do you and your employees know how to stay secure?

It’s more common than you think for workers to use their pet’s names or even ‘12345’ as a password. Those are incredibly easy to break, and you can imagine all of the sensitive information being poorly protected by those passwords.

We know how important security is to your business, and we’ve come up with a few tips to help make sure your passwords don’t get you into trouble.

  • Get a Password Vault

A password vault basically allows you to store all of your passwords inside an encrypted file. If you’re keeping up with a lot of different words and phrases and using Word or Excel to store them, you’re not really keeping them sure.

The one plausible downside is that you need the internet to access a password vault generated by an app or website. Still, password vaults are among the safest way to keep our codes away from prying eyes, and there are a number of options on the market. We’ll talk to you to figure out which is the best for your needs.

  • Change Your Passwords

This may seem obvious, but many people use the same passwords for multiple accounts – banks, business, personal – and never change them for years. You’re putting a lot at risk if you neglect to change your password. It’s an easy way to ensure that you’re the only one who knows your private codes. Business and financial passwords especially need to be changed frequently.

  • Don’t Make Them Simple

Again, this probably seems obvious. But too many people are using birthdays, nicknames, or easy-to-guess phrases and number sequences to safeguard sensitive information. You need to be sure your employees understand the absolute importance of using complicated, unique passwords to protect their accounts.

We know it can be tough trying to ensure your business stays safe, but we’re here to take some of that burden off. We’ll talk to your business about the best and most effective security solutions and ensure you’re always educated about proper protection.
