Password The Dutchie On The Left Hand Side: 5 Tips On Creating A Strong Password

Creating a strong password is crucial in protecting your clients personal and sensitive information, as well as your own. In this blog, we'll give you 5 tips on how to create strong passwords that will keep your accounts safe from cybercriminals.

  1. Length is key: The longer the password, the harder it is to crack. Aim for a minimum of 12 characters or more.

  2. Mix it up: Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols to create a more complex password.

  3. Avoid personal information: Don't use easily guessable information such as your name, birthdate, or address. Avoid using common words or phrases, and never use "password" or "12345678" as your password.

  4. Use a password manager: Consider using a password manager to generate and store strong, unique passwords for each of your accounts. This will save you from having to remember multiple complex passwords and will also protect you from password reuse.

  5. Change your passwords regularly: Even with a strong password, it's a good idea to change it regularly. Consider changing your passwords every thirty to sixty days within your organisation, or immediately if you suspect any unauthorised access to your accounts.

In summary, creating a strong password is essential for protecting company and personal information. Follow these tips, such as using a password manager, and changing your passwords regularly, to ensure that your accounts stay secure.
