Passwords are the key to all your important information and you should ask is my password safe.

Just like you wouldn’t use a single key to access your house, garage, car or office.

Having one password for multiple apps increases your risk,

but despite all the reports about Cyber Crime 3 in 4 people are still using duplicate passwords that are easy to guess.

Is my Password-safe?

So how secure are your passwords? Even if you think you have chosen a code that is really unique, hackers may still find a way to crack it.

Some use a technique called Brute Force using software they try millions of different combinations of letters and numbers until they get in.

If you choose a word that is in the dictionary it is even easier for them to figure it out.

With so much shared online often all it takes is a quick search of your Social Media profiles.

Hackers are often given clues such as pets names to anniversaries.

We also have a Blog article highlighting the need to make sure a Data Breach has not caused your password to be leaked,

take a read of our Article titled Does Someone Have Your Password?

There are lots of ways to create safer passwords, these include combining random words with numbers and special characters.

Using a Password Generation Tool combined with a Password Manager and investing in Multi-Factor Authentication (2FA).

Password security doesn’t have to be difficult,

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
