Every few months I like to write about passwords and backups just to remind everyone how important these issues can be. While Iâ€™d like to remind you again to review your backup policies, I really want to stress some common sense password protection.
Iâ€™m sure you all know enough not to use your kids or pets names for passwords but do you use different passwords for every different site you visit online? If not, you could be in real danger and youâ€™re putting everyone else in danger too. STOP IT!
Last week an employee of Twitter had their account compromised and internal business documents were stolen. The documents were actually offered for sale on the internet. The Twitter server wasnâ€™t â€œhackedâ€, it was accessed using the employees name and password. Seems the employee used the same password on another online site.
