Cyber Security: Password Management
What is in a strong password? Is there still such a thing in this age of easy access?
One password that is used throughout all of your personal and work accounts, and that is really the only layer of security that we place in front of hackers,
In the modern day, this is equivalent to just closing the front gate of your home.
But what can you do as an individual or business looking at creating and strengthening your cyber security?
At home, you can have CCTVs, or a watch dog. Add-on a simple door access solution.
Same thing at the offices, you can install CCTVs, get security guards AND dogs, plus door access solutions.
These are are all physical security. And they don’t come cheap.
Even the thieves and robbers know that, and they have gone digital.
Yes, you can install a next-generation anti-virus (NGAV), but that is still a little more costly compared to subscribing to a password manager solution.
Solutions that are in the market right now are nothing short of plenty.
There’s 1Password, LastPass, Dashlane, Zoho Vault, Duo Mobile, Google Smart Lock (in your Chrome browsers), just to name a few.
We will follow some of the brands over the next few weeks and see what they can do for you.
We will be exploring password managers for consumers and enterprises in the coming weeks.
