Passwords are used on a daily basis to access information that is of vital importance. Passwords that are hacked or that are not strong enough could seriously compromise security and eventually, cause an IT disaster. You should begin putting processes in place immediately to make sure you data is going to be secure.

First thing’s first, make sure you do actually have passwords set up for all sensitive information. You should be able to set them for individual documents, as well as having secure website logins. Change your passwords regularly, as well as making them secure in the first place. This will greatly reduce the risk of someone guessing your password, or of someone being able to breach security during a cyber attack.

Your IT administrator will be able to look after your passwords for you. Make sure you are not emailing passwords or sending them over in other easily accessible forms.
