Stay Secure Online - Free Password Safety Infographic

With Christmas literally here, it is that time of the year when staying secure online becomes more important than ever. 

Understand that all these new tech savvy gifts you are receiving or gifting come with an exuberant number of possible exploits and personal data issues. 

If you are gifting anything that requires an online login or account creation, be sure to hammer home the importance of quality password creation. It is understood that passwords less than 12 characters can be cracked with modern PC's in months or years. When was the last time you changed your password? 

If it's been more than 6 months, go change it now. It's OK I'll wait......OK ready?

I created the following info-graphic to be a constant reminder for anyone creating online accounts to go by. This will increase the security of your account and decrease the likelihood that your account will be compromised. It will not decrease the chance to zero because your online security relies on your actions and your actions alone. If you don't know about Social Engineering, I highly recommend you google it and be ready for some horror stories. After a few minutes of that research you will want to use the tips in pic below ASAP. 

Feel free to share this with anyone and everyone with the provided link at the bottom. Happy Holidays!

If you utilize Google for most of your website logins, a USB security key would be a great addition to your online security. The FIDO U2F Security key works with some sites like Google and Facebook. You secure your Google login with the key then you can use it to login to other sites. A physical key is one of the safest ways to keep your password information safe online.
