Passwords are a critical piece of the cyber security equation for every business. Every account you have requires a password – from your Facebook and Instagram accounts to your bank, CRM and email accounts. And because we all have so many different accounts, people have a tendency to use the same password for everything. No one wants to remember 20 different passwords, but if you use the same password for everything, your accounts aren't secure and you're leaving yourself exposed.
That’s why password security is so critical. If someone gets a hold of one of your passwords they can find their way into a number of your accounts. Password security is one of the least leveraged, and most critical pieces of cybersecurity protection you can put in place for your business. It’s simple to implement and manage, it’s free, and it can help significantly reduce your chances of a data breach.
That’s why we put this video together. Our President, Ted Shafran, explains why you need to be concerned about password security and outlines some best practices you should be using to reduce your chances of becoming another victim of cybercrime.
