The No. 1 Way A Hacker Will Get You Is…

The primary method hackers use to infiltrate your network is through weak passwords, constituting the leading cause, with a staggering 81% of breaches last year resulting from either weak or stolen passwords! A robust password should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • A minimum length of eight characters
  • A combination of uppercase and lowercase letters
  • Inclusion of at least one number and one symbol (e.g., #)
  • Avoidance of complete words; for instance, "PaSsWord123#," despite meeting criteria, can be cracked within seconds using a hacker's brute-force software.
  • Never reuse a password across multiple accounts, such as using the same password for your Facebook and LinkedIn accounts.
