A weak password is still the #1 way hackers break into your network. In fact, 81% of the total number of breaches last year utilized weak or stolen passwords!
Here’s what a GOOD password should contain:
· A minimum of eight characters
· Uppercase and lowercase letters
· At least one number and one symbol (#, for example)
· No complete words, like “PaSsWord123#.” While this meets the requirements, a hacker’s brute-force software will crack that in seconds.
· Never reuse a password for multiple accounts (like making your Facebook and LinkedIn passwords the same).

Protect Yourself from Phishing Scams: Spotting the Fakes
Imagine receiving an email that seems completely legitimate, potentially from a trusted website you use regularly. However, hidden beneath the surface lies a sinister ploy to deceive you into revealing sensitive login information or downloading a harmful virus. These deceptive emails, known as phishing emails, can be incredibly convincing, making it crucial to know how to distinguish them from authentic messages.
Some common disguises employed by phishing emails include appearing to be PDF attachments, fake tracking numbers from renowned couriers like UPS or FedEx, official bank letters, notifications from social media platforms like Facebook, or bank alerts. The danger lies in the fact that they are meticulously crafted to mimic the appearance of genuine emails, making them difficult to identify.
So, how can you safeguard yourself against these fraudulent emails? Look out for these telltale signs that can help you spot phishing attempts before falling victim.

Tech Tip Tuesday - Protecting Your Business from Ransomware - The Critical Aspect That Many Organizations Ignore!
Are you doing everything right to protect your business from cyber threats?
From implementing top-notch Endpoint Detection to monitoring your systems with a security operations center, you've covered all the bases. Or so you thought.
The truth is, many organizations fall victim to ransomware because they neglect a CRITICAL aspect of cybersecurity: physical security. While they do a great job protecting computer and notebook devices, they fail to secure their server and network rooms, often shared with other resources.
But why does physical security matter when it comes to ransomware? The answer is simple: someone can simply walk into your office, plug in a USB or network device, and infect your servers or network resources. They might impersonate a maintenance crew member, gaining access without anyone suspecting a thing.
That's why a comprehensive security plan is a must. It should not only address cyber threats but also physical security. Here are the 5 critical elements your physical security program should include:
Proper guest and visitor program: Log and monitor all guests and visitors, and if possible, supervise them while on your premises.
Reliable Gatekeepers: Have skilled personnel standing guard to prevent unwanted visitors from accessing secure areas and disturbing key employees and decision makers.
Secure server and network environments: Keep your equipment in a dedicated, locked, and monitored location whenever possible. Use secure doors and access cards to control access.
Limited access to secure locations: Make your secure areas hard to find and restrict entry to a select few. Continuously monitor these areas and have multiple layers of security.
Protect against tampering: Just like with end point devices, prevent USB devices from auto executing. Disable unused network ports and limit communication to necessary devices only.
