Could I crack your staff’s passwords?

Passwords are the entry point to most systems that is why long random passwords generated by a computer are the safest.

But unfortunately the complexity causes staff to hate them as they are so hard to remember unless you’re actually using a password manager..
But those tend to be the ones that some staff hate the most. Because they’re difficult to type in if you don’t use a password manager.

The problem is – a short or weak password is easy for hackers to guess and gain entry to your valuable business data. Short or obvious word passports are fairly simple to hack using brute force and the bad guys know this so mainly use software which tries every combination until it gets it right.

This video is looks at the risks of weak passwords.

you can even run your passwords through our  password checker, to see how safe they really are.

How easy are your staff's passwords to crack?

A strong password is the first line of defence against unauthorised access to your business’s data.

Randomly generated passwords tend to be very strong, as they’re long and full of random characters.

However that’s why sometimes staff don’t like them. Or worse, they keep an unprotected digital copy of their passwords… which defeats the point of having them.

We’ve now got a password checker on our website. Why not get your team to test their passwords and see how strong they are.

The answer to most password problems is to use a password manager.

These store, manage and generate passwords for the sites and services your people use.

All the passwords are safely stored in an encrypted vault.

The only password you then need is the one to access the password manager.

We can get your business set up with a great password manager. Just give us a call.
