Importance of Secure Passwords

Have you ever wondered how hackers start their journey when breaching company data? It all starts from that single point of failure; the password.

In this age of cyber security and information security, it is remarkable how many passwords are compromised because they are not strong enough. It doesn’t matter if it is for business or personal use, not having a secure password can have dire consequences for the individual or organisation. Learn how hackers steal your passwords and how to protect your business from data breaches in our password safety online training course today.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Password protection is a form of information security process designed to protect user data and information from unauthorised access. You often require passwords to access computers, devices, business systems and online accounts. Password protection ensures the safety of sensitive user data and business information and prevents cybercriminals from obtaining access.

A strong password is hard to guess and resistant to hacking or guessing. A good password is long and includes a combination of upper-case letters, lower case letters, symbols and numbers. The key to creating a secure password is to start with a simple phrase and make it more complex. For example, ‘$m3llycat’ is a much stronger password than ‘smellycat’

Password protection is fairly common in many functions of day-to-day life. Whether that’s accessing business systems, online bank accounts or social media profiles, passwords are ubiquitous. The number of passwords required these days mean that many people tend to have more than one to remember which can lead to reusing the same password for some or all accounts, making them vulnerable and posing a information security risk.
