You Need A Password Manager…Writing Them Down Isn’t Working

The age of digitalization is here, and that means everything is in the cloud. While some things are suddenly more convenient, another administrative nightmare has been born. Too many passwords! And now the experts are telling you you need lower case, upper case, special characters, and at least 8 characters!!!

The truth is, you really do need something better than your dog’s name followed by a number. It’s computers that try to guess your password, not some guy locked in a dark room. And computers can process permutations of numbers fast!

The solution? Well, the best solution is two factor authentication. However, that may not be available. The next best thing is a password manager…or password vault.

There are lots of great options. Some sync to your phone or across all of your devices. Download one and start using it. A good one will allow you to easily generate new (complex) passwords in a moment. The best part is, these programs encrypt your data so it’s a whole lot safer than writing them down or reusing them.

The 10 Biggest Computer Hacks – Disasters We Can Learn From Hacker History We Should All Know

Safeguarding data has a lot to do with learning from those who have been hit in the past and not repeating their mistakes. Every hack I can think of involves at least one mistake made by company leadership or their end-users (not well educated on safe data handling practices)… https://lnkd.in/gSiFhkk

Attention Business Owners: 5 Questions You Should Be Able To Answer, Even if Your a Small Business

Cybersecurity is a leadership issue – not an IT problem. It affects every aspect of your business, and if you have a board, they too, should be aware of a few things. Here are 5 questions you should be able to answer – and as the answer change over time, you and your management should be keeping pace:

What is your current exposure? The attached article says, “Are you secure”? In my opinion, they’ve phrased this question so it can’t really be answered. Exposure assumes you can be attacked (and you can) and instead asks, what’s the likelihood certain “bad” things will happen.

Can you detect before it’s too late? In the attached article, you’ll read – “How do we know if we’ve been breached?” Both are accurate, however, the point is, can you detect fast enough. Eventually, everyone knows – in most cases they know too late.

How does your security program compare with others in your industry? This matters believe it or not. Not that you’re gaining a competitive advantage (which in most cases you’re not). But if breached, you’ll want to show you have done what any smart business would do, and what is expected of a company like yours. This speaks to something called, Due Care, a term that may come up if your clients discover a breach and sue.

Do you have enough resources to handle security? In most cases the answer will be no, unless you’ve contracted with third party providers. The truth is, there’s a lack of cybersecurity talent out there, and the great security experts are not taking jobs with small businesses – they work for IT providers and very large fortune 500 businesses.

How effective is your security program? Effective speaks to your ability to stay up and running – the detect disasters when they are just starting, heading them off before any real damage is done.

Keeping Your Data Safe Depends on Detection…You Can’t Really Keep Them Out

Here’s the good news when it comes to securing data – “Just because cyber criminals are tech-savvy doesn’t mean they’re not also lazy and prone to errors. You may not be able to understand the malicious code they write and deploy, but thanks to advances in threat detection, you don’t need to…”. Now the bad news. Most businesses have nothing in place to detect these patterns and mistakes…so even the sloppy criminals get away without your data…make sure you have the right detection in place. Read more about how hackers get caught and what you should be doing to keep them from actually getting to your data.

Small Business – The Hackers #1 Target. Here’s What You Can Do To Lock Things Down

Experts tell us – small business is the target. There are several things you can do to tighten up security – here’s a link to 5 good ones. My favorite in this list is putting in place a process to authorize wire transfers. You’d think that is the bank’s job, however banking agreements state, in most cases, you have just 24 hours to catch a fraudulent wire transfer! Just 24 hours…

Your personal banking offers 60 days…enough time in many cases to spot something. 24 Hours is just not enough time. The hacker takes over the managers email (related to item one on the list), then sends a request for payment to AP…the person there sends the money. 24 hours later, the hacker owns that money and chances of getting caught are almost zero.
