Password Security is an Important Component to Your Online Safety

Password Security is an Important Component to Your Online Safety

Most people don’t realize how many techniques there are that can be used to crack passwords. More importantly, they don’t know the many ways we make our accounts vulnerable because we use simple and widely used passwords. Remember that a strong password is your first line of defense against intruders and imposters. As we approach the conclusion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, we hope you’ll take another look at your collection of passwords and pledge to access your accounts with ones that make sense to you, but not to others.

Staying Protected While Always Connected

Many of these online activities require us to provide personal information, such as name, email address, account number and credit card information. This puts us at risk of having this information compromised by cyber criminals. It’s important to understand how to protect yourself when connecting on the go.

It involves acquiring key pieces of someone’s identifying information, such as name, address, date of birth, social security number and mother’s maiden name, in order to impersonate them. It can start with lost or stolen wallets, stolen mail, a data breach, computer virus, “phishing” scams, or paper documents thrown out by you or a business. Because of the nature of the crime, victims often do not realize their identity has been stolen until they are denied credit, turned down for a job or sent a bill for purchases they did not make. Remember that cyber security is a shared responsibility!
