I recently learned that October is Cybersecurity month. So just in case you didn’t know, we’re on the same page now 😆
But this doesn’t mean that October is the only time of the year you need to think about your passwords. Or the links that you click.
Cybersecurity “awareness” must be a consistent daily practice!
As my friend and cybersecurity expert Scott Schober recently said in a CBS News interview about Ransomware, “It’s a big problem and it’s not going away any time soon“.
We can all do a better job at managing our passwords to ensure the health and security of our accounts.
So I’m sharing this as reminder…
It’s essential to update your PINs & passwords, and to enable two-factor authentication (2FA), also known as multifactor authentication (MFA) whenever possible.
And this includes your voicemail PIN and app password in your phone system too. The days of using 0-0-0-0 or 1-2-3-4 are long gone.
I wanted to share a few past IDeACOM posts which include checklists and provide tips intended to keep you informed – and hopefully help you take action.
Still need convincing?
According to Cybersecurity Ventures, global cybercrime costs are expected to reach $10.5 trillion annually by 2025!
I’m not here to frighten you but I have to admit that these cybercrime statistics are alarming to say the least.
Here’s an interesting article from Cybercrime Magazine: “Cybercrime To Cost The World $10.5 Trillion Annually By 2025”.
