Password Security

Password security is a vital element of your overall business cyber security, and your passwords are often the frontline defence for your data. Managing your passwords correctly and ensuring you have efficient security can help protect them against cyber-attacks and prevent unauthorised access to your data.

Keeping track of all your passwords can be difficult and it often seems easiest to use the same credentials for your accounts or to store them in a Word document or Excel spreadsheet. This however poses a significant risk to your cyber security. Password manager software can help you securely store your credentials all in one place and grant access to those who need it.
