“Here are some tips for Good Password Security”-World Password Day 

Today is World Password Day, which is a global holiday dedicated to the promotion of password security and keeping accounts secure with password best practices.

 

The holiday is particularly important now, as cybercriminals feel emboldened by recent large-scale nation state hacking campaigns targeting U.S. government agencies, healthcare, education and technology companies through compromises, highlighted by the SolarWinds and Microsoft Exchange Server breaches.

It appears that compromised credentials played somewhat of a role in those breaches, and stolen passwords continue to be how cybercriminals and nation state hackers compromise networks in the first place, with some cybersecurity and IT firms estimating that credentials are exploited in more than 80% of global cyberattacks.

Here is a refresher on how to keep your credentials and identify safe, including best practices and technology that can help keep your organization safe and secure. After all, practicing good credential security is the least an organization can do to secure itself.

Cybercriminals always look for the low-hanging fruit and the easiest way into a network, and that low-hanging fruit is, more often that not, end users and their poor credential security. At the very least, make sure your end users are aware of the role they play when it comes to these issues.
