Passwords are often seen as an annoyance, especially when we're prompted to change them every few months. However, your password can be the one thing keeping your data safe from cybercriminals, so how do you manage them?
Our Client Services Director, Chris Houghton, talks through 5 Best Practices for Better Password Management in our latest video below:
- MFA aka Multi-Factor Authentication
- Don't reuse passwords
- Password Complexity
- Password Management Applications
- Credential Monitoring - Dark Web Monitoring

Is Your Data on the Dark Web?
As Chris mentions in the video, your data sells for as little as £2 on the Dark Web - we have specialised tools that scan the Dark Web for your organisation's domain name to see if your information is up for sale. It can also show you which email accounts have been compromised, the passwords used and more.
If you'd like to see if your organisation's passwords or data have been leaked on the Dark Web, request your free scan below -
Think of your data as your house and the locks to your front door are the passwords - if you lost your house keys, what would you do? Some might do nothing, hoping no one found the keys, and if they did, didn't know where you lived. Others would change the locks to make sure their house stays secure.
The same goes for your passwords and data - if a cybercriminal gains access to your password, they can easily access any website, application or data that uses your username and password.
