Letters numbers and whole lot of nonsense is needed when creating a strong password. Follow our 5 top tips to help create your passwords stronger and keep the cyber criminals away!

5 Tips To Create A Strong Password

  1. 15+ Characters
  2. Stay away from your pets name
  3. Nonsense that makes sense to you
  4. Don’t use the same passwordst
  5. Enable 2FA (and MFA)

Stronger passwords = better security

Tip one

Always use a minimum of 15 characters and a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. Using a password manager will also help you manage the complex passwords.

Tip two

Using your pets name “Coco” followed by your year of birth is not a great combo. Real words in general shouldn’t be used and instead made up words are needed (see below).

Tip three

I want to go to Venice to eat ice cream” could mean a great deal to you so abbreviating and changing it to this “!W2g2V3n!323!c” makes your password much stronger!

Tip four

Even if it’s a strong password, using the same password across multiple accounts is a rookie mistake. If a hacker can access one account, they can then access them all.

Tip five

Two factor authentication (2FA) is a much needed layer of protection for all your logins. Ensure you enable 2FA or MFA on all of your accounts to help stop fraudsters.

We always recommend a multi-layered approach, which is why a combination of cyber security and disaster recovery solutions as well as educating your team is important.
