Cyber security is something we all come across in our day to day lives and there is no exception for businesses. For most of us, the majority of our lives are stored on our computers, mobiles, and tablets, from photos, and memories, to personal information and bank details, and if any of those things were to go missing or get stolen – we would be truly devastated. Back in 2013, an average of 120,000 cyber-attacks were targeted at Britain each day, and considering how far technology advanced since then, we dread to think of the amount of cyber-attacks that are now happening every day.
Keep your passwords secure and protected
One of the main ways in which you can keep your information and systems safe is by having a secure password. Although it may be hard to remember a difficult password each time you enter your system, it is well-worth using something more secure as the more complicated the password is, the harder it will be for your system to get hacked into.
Here are some tips on what passwords to avoid, from 2016 with these 10 ranking as the worst passwords last year:
Using a range of different passwords across multiple systems is also another effective way to keep your data safe. If someone were to hack into your system, it is more than likely they will try to use your discovered password multiple times, so by using a number of unrelated passwords you will dramatically reduce the areas of your system the hacker will be able to access.
