Why Cyber Security Review Is Important For Your Business?

Just like how it is crucial to get a yearly health checkup, your enterprise needs to have a security checkup as in a security assessment. According to ACSC’s (Australian Cyber Security Centre) annual cyber security threat report, Australian companies are more vulnerable to cyber attacks.

The ACSC receives a prodigious amount of cyber crime reports from all over Australia which is approximately 4000+ reports per month. Australian companies are losing money, confidential data, and are becoming victims of cyber crimes through fraudulent e-mails and phishing attacks.

Well, for starters, “Hackers attack every 39 seconds.’ – The University of Maryland, the pre-eminent national center for research. There is solid statistical evidence to back that statement.

Strong, Secure Passwords

Passwords are one of the critical problems in cybersecurity today.

Username: Admin
Password: Admin123

Weak passwords are a major security threat. The password that tops the list of the most used passwords is ‘password’ indeed. Ironic, isn’t it? (Username) and (Username) 123, 0000 or 1234, your birth year or combinations of it are not the kind of passwords you should be using anywhere. Switch to alphanumeric passwords. For example, Password: bOxIt8w@T$. These types of passwords are distinctive and hence difficult to hack. But strong and unique passwords are hard to remember, you can look at installing a password manager like Zoho Vault.

Zoho Vault is an online password manager that helps businesses securely store, share and manage passwords.
