How do you make your passwords more secure?

Posted by Akankasha Dewan on 11 October 2019 14:04:43 AEDT

It's an important question, considering weak password hygiene is still one of the top factors exploited by cybercriminals when they're looking to hack into accounts. 

Every day, we hear reports of businesses being hacked into by techniques such as password spraying, or phishing emails designed to harvest confidential information. 

How strong is your business when it comes to password security?

Each year, through Stay Smart Online Week, the Australian Government works with governments, industry, small business operators and community groups to raise awareness about the ways people can protect themselves online.

Organised by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), Stay Smart Online Week will run from 7-13 October 2019. This year, we are continuing the 'Reverse the Threat' of cybercrime theme and empowering Australians to take control of their online identity by reviewing privacy settings, knowing how to spot phishing scams, creating strong and unique passwords and turning on two-factor authentication.

MailGuard is proud to be an official campaign partner of the Stay Smart Online Week.

To help educate you and your teams on best practices on password security management, we’ve created a special infographic in celebration of Stay Smart Online Week.

Download the infographic today and share it with your team to get them up-to-speed and help to ensure better security across everyone’s accounts.
