A few months ago, LinkedIn, a business network site, was attacked. Hackers stole usernames and passwords, causing irrevocable damage. And if you thought that was an isolated incident, you were wrong! Websites get hacked all the time and the hackers steal passwords and other personal data.
Hackers use these usernames and passwords to try and access other online accounts, including bank accounts. Because of this and because of the reoccurrence of these cybersecurity issues, it is important to take your own measures to ensure your important data and personal information is safe.
Simple Cybersecurity Tips for Employees
- Never use the Same Password Twice: One of the biggest mistakes users make is to use the same username and password for multiple sites.
- Reset Passwords Regularly: Security experts advise people to regularly change their passwords.
- Never Write your Password Down: Avoid writing passwords in pieces of paper. Yes, this makes it easier for you to reference, but it also makes you much more vulnerable.
- Choosing Security Questions: When choosing your security question, do not use personal information or basic information that can be easily found online.
- Completely Delete Documents: When deleting documents, make sure that you have completely removed it from the system.
