You want your staff to watch this video. Because their weak passwords put your business at risk.

3 in 4 people use passwords so weak, they are very easily hacked. We're talking:

  • 123456
  • Pet names, children' names, spouse's names
  • Football teams, favourite player, etc

At C3 Computers almost every day we see the consequences of local businesses being hacked, due to weak passwords.

    We've got a brand new educational video on password security. You can watch it right now.

    Security tips

    Here are a few tips for protecting your logins, and keeping your passwords secure...

    • Use random passwords, and use a different password for every site
    • Use a password manager to make creating and remembering passwords easier
    • Make your answers to security questions just as strong as your passwords
    • Use “two-factor authentication” wherever you can
    • Pay attention to the browser’s security signals, and be suspicious
