Passwords are a risk to your business!
When it comes to creating a new password for a new account or website, it’s tempting to choose one simple password and stick with it for anytime you need a password.
However, working with passwords in this way poses a huge cyber security threat: if your password is simple, it’s easy for hackers to gain access to any of your online accounts, and if you’ve used the same one several times, they suddenly have access to all of your accounts.
Often, employees use poor password etiquette across professional accounts as well as personal ones. In other words, if you have no password policy in place within the company, your business is at significant risk of data breaches.
It’s easier said than done!! – it’s really difficult to have strong, unique passwords for each of our accounts when we have to remember so many. That’s where a password manager comes in handy.
The threat is greater than you think!
Some businesses feel that they don’t need a password manager for thier staff, as they believe that each member of staff would only need to store a small number of easy to remember passwords.
In reality, each person within your organisation has access to around 70-100 password-enabled accounts these days, and with many staff now using online tools for their job, just about every employee across your compnay now uses some form of online login for their role.
When we reuse the same passwords across several accounts (professionally and personally), the risks associated with poor password hygiene start to become clearer.
