Be aware! Secure your passwords now!

The foundation of cybersecurity is base on passwords. They are required everywhere: from logging in to our social media accounts to buying apps. Remember that nothing can be done without a password, to do something you must access an account. A good part of our lives has been moved online so passwords are not some trivial things, meaning that they must be secure and nonrepetitive from an account to other.

There are two types of password users over the cyberspace: one type that uses passwords that are complex but difficult to remember and a second type that uses passwords that are easy to remember and also easy to crack.
From here we have a dilemma: what to use? Complex but forgettable or easy but crackable?

Without any doubt, the users that use complex passwords are more secure by they are prone to forget them which also is a problem. A problem that makes everyone thinks twice: should I use an easy one like myname123 or a forgettable one like Pa$$WordStR0nG.
A survey regarding password types was made. We are glad to report that complex passwords are used in online banking accounts 63%, payment applications including e-wallets 42% and online shopping accounts 41%.

The survey also concluded that more then a half of the people we asked are storing their passwords insecurely and 23% of them are keeping them saved on a notepad. 10% of people surveyed admitted that they are using the same password for every account they own, which is a huge security issue. Reusing the same password is one of the biggest mistakes that a user can make, once one account is brach, the others will be too. Don’t think it is not happening because our report showed that only in the past year 17% of the participants encountered an attack made to an account which in many cases ended up being hijacked.

We have a solution for this kind of problem: password managers! Use them! Password managers are the key to a strongly secured account. They are very easy to use, and you have to remember only one complex password to login to them. All other passwords are autogenerated for each account and stored in password manager’s encrypted vault.

For those who don’t want to use Password managers please follow this Golden Rules:
1. Every password must have at least 15 characters long
2. Never use easily guessable passwords. Never use personal details in them such as your date of birth, place of birth, partner’s name and so.
3. Never use real words. They can be breach using “dictionary attacks,” which is made by a program that quickly tries a huge list of possible words until they find one that matches your password.
4. Combine letters (including uppercase letters), numbers, and symbols.
5. Don’t “recycle” passwords — say, adam1, adam2, adam3, etc.
6. Always use a different password for each account this prevents all of your accounts becoming vulnerable.
7. If you suspect your password has been compromised, change it immediately.
8. Always use a top antivirus on every device because many malicious apps can record and send your passwords to cybercriminals.

A healthy company must perform a penetration test from time to time. The penetration test must execute against all the assets of the company, including the workers who are the most vulnerable to the social engineering attacks.
A penetration test can be done either by a security specialist from inside of the company or by hiring an external cyber security company who can take care of everything.
Besides penetration test, a company must have a minimum healthy cybersecurity system installed like antivirus or firewall.
