How To Create A Strong Password
To protect sensitive data, use a unique and sensitive password. Please, do not write your password anywhere. Do not use common credentials or words as passwords. Hackers have a database of common words.
The best password is a paraphrase with a combination of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers and special characters that is difficult to guess.
Always change your default password and make sure they are different for each account. This ensures that if attackers break your password, they will only have access to that one account. If you cannot remember it, you can make use of Password Manager. You need to ask around, do some research, find the best password manager that will work for you.
When you are downloading an App, make sure you are downloading from an official store. You need to be careful about where the password manager stores your password. Is it in the cloud or phone? Once the server where the passwords are stored is compromised, your entire password will be compromised.
You have to make use of Multi-Factor Authentication. It can make use of something you know or something you have. You can also make use of a software or hardware token. Some also make use of OTP or App on phones. If a vendor has an MFA option, go for it. It is more secured than an ordinary password.
No matter how strong your password is, a breach is always possible. All it takes is for one of your accounts to be compromised. You need to continue to prioritise security for all accounts for remote access, high-value access by using MFA. Make sure you are the only one that has access to your account for email, online banking, social media and other services.
Necessity for backup
To protect your data, you must back it up regularly. Backup protect you against data disaster. Backup can be of importance during Ransomeware attack. You can restore your data without paying Ransome.
You have to make sure that whatever solution you choose allows you to restore from a particular time in the past. You also have to make sure that backup data are also encrypted. You have to be careful where you store your data so that you don’t lose such data forever.
