Tech Tip Tuesday - This one simple thing is still the best way to protect yourself


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).
