Improving Password Security Improves All of Your Defenses


One of the top concerns that many businesses have when making a cybersecurity plan is how to protect themselves from cybercriminals. But that’s not the right thing to have at the top of your cybersecurity checklist. More cybersecurity incidents like a data breach are caused by human error than anything else – and one of the worst errors that many staffers make is creating a terrible password. 
Bad, weak, cracked, or compromised passwords are the bread and butter of cybercrime. Login credentials are currency, especially for privileged users. The fastest, cheapest, and easiest way to immediately improve your cybersecurity is to teach and enforce good password hygiene, from creation to storage.
ID Agent provides several resources to help educate your users on making and storing secure passwords. Our new eBook details some common mistakes that users make when creating passwords. We’ve provided an analysis of several of the biggest password pitfalls of 2020 in our blog. 
Our Password Education Package provides great information about how to make stronger passwords including the whitepaper “Building Better Passwords” – and our Top 50 Worst Passwords List to see how yours stacks up. 
Contact Bit by Bit today for an expert analysis of how you can update your security plan to include solutions like Dark Web ID to mitigate the damage caused by bad passwords and maintain data security compliance to protect your company from threats at a price that doesn’t threaten your budget.
