This month, we’re participating in National Cyber Security Awareness Month to help ensure all of our advisors have the resources for a safe and secure online experience. Now is the perfect time to review and improve your online security.
PBS Nova Labs Cybersecurity Lab – A fun, interactive game that can help you learn how to be more secure online.
Here are a few other ideas to get you started:
USE A PASSWORD VAULT
Store your passwords securely and access them when you need them. This will help to prevent from using the same password on multiple sites, a big no no!
MIX IT UP
Strengthen your security by generating unique non-guessable passwords using a password generator.
- Norton Identity Safe Password Generator
- PasswordGenerator.Net Secure Password Generator
- LastPass Password Generator
- Random.Org Random Password Generator
Create a password policy and prompt all the users in your office to update passwords frequently.
USE WHAT YOU HAVE
Add another layer of security by requiring a second piece of information to access certain sites using two-factor authentication.
