How to Achieve Strong Password Behavior

What is a critical part of Cyber Security that directly impacts the safety of your sensitive information and data? Strong password behavior.

Cyber threats have become more sophisticated than ever before, and your password is usually the first line of defense against these threats. Implementing strong password practices is a crucial step to safeguard your digital assets.

How do you achieve strong password behavior?  Here are some essential rules to follow:
•  Complexity is Key: Create passwords that are at least 12 characters long and include a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters.
•  Unique and Unpredictable: Avoid using easily guessable information like birthdays, names, or common words.  Instead, use combinations that are unique and difficult for others to predict.
•  No Sharing or Reusing: Never share your passwords with anyone and refrain from using the same password for multiple accounts.
•  Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Enable MFA wherever possible, adding an extra layer of security to your accounts.
•  Utilize a Password Manager:  In order to keep track of all passwords, use a password manager. All you will need to remember is a master password.

By following these guidelines, you can significantly enhance the security of your accounts and minimize the risk of your valuable information being compromised.
