You might want to read this!

I’m sure you have read things like this hundreds of times before, however before you decide to stop and read something else I urge you to take a few more minutes to continue reading.

Don’t forget that GDPR is coming our way in 2018, however, we ALL do need to start to take our privacy seriously.

Seriously (pardon the pun) just take a moment to check your beloved favorite password that you no longer use, with this checker site – http://www.passwordmeter.com/

So as you can see if you happen to use the word “password” as just that you can see how really bad it really is.

 

Compare that with “22 November 2017” and you can see the result. 

If you have tried the site above, you will see, in most cases how exposed you are. So once again I urge you to switch on more security. Almost ALL good online services (Facebook, Outlook, Gmail, LinkedIn and more) all offer a service called 2FA. If you switch this service on, in its simplest form you will receive a text to your mobile (cell) phone with a code that is required in addition to your password to gain access to your account.

There are even better ways to protect yourself so please get in touch if you would like to know more.

I was motivated to write this having read this in The Register yesterday.

“The chief exec of the National Cyber Security Centre – a branch of the UK’s spy nerve-centre GCHQ – has called on everyone to enable two-factor authentication for their emails. ”

Please take action to make yourselves more secure TODAY. If nothing else please call 0118 321 7665 to find out more and how easy it is to do this.

Thank you for reading this and if you need any assistance please contact Webster Consulting if you need more help.
