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:

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

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

  • Make your answers to security questions just as strong as your passwords
  • Use “two-factor authentication” wherever you can
