Use strong PASSWORDS!

Thanks to powerful brute-force-attack software readily available online, hackers can try tens of millions of possible password combinations per second. For example, hacking software can guess a five-character password in under three hours. If you only use lowercase letters, it’s 11.9 seconds.

This will SHOCK you about bank fraud on business accounts

Did you know your COMPANY’S bank account doesn’t enjoy the same protections as a personal bank account? For example, if a hacker takes money from your business account, the bank is NOT responsible for getting your money back. (Don’t believe me?

3 Essential Rules for All Cloud Applications

If you’re using cloud applications while your employees are working from home, you are right to be concerned about data privacy and security. The company hosting your data is ultimately responsible for keeping hackers out of THEIR network, but most cloud breaches are due to USER ERROR.

Here are a few things you can easily do to improve security in the cloud:

Maintain a STRONG password of at least eight characters with numbers, symbols and both uppercase and lowercase letters.
