October is cybersecurity awareness month. We want to share a few tips to help you protect your company from the every so growing security threats to keep your keys safe.
1. Have a multi-layered security approach. The most widely used authentication method is two-factor authentication. This combination typically consists of a username and password. However, did you know that you can add another layer that?
2. Complex Passwords. Your passwords should be a minimum of eight (8) characters consisting of numbers, lowercase/uppercase letters and symbols.
3. Force Password Changes. Do enforce a password change policy on the company network. Anywhere from 60-90 days. This will force the users on your network to be compliant and change their passwords when they expire.
4. Lockout Policies. Do not allow unlimited password attempts on your network. After three (3) invalid password attempts the user account should be locked.
