Security

I would be doing a disservice if I didn’t talk about security. The Cyber Security industry currently has the biggest skills shortage in the world.

Why? because you can’t get a job without experience and you can’t get experience without a job.

There are a few things here that you can do to keep your personal and business data safe.

Secure your passwords, don’t write them on a post-it note, don’t put them in a notebook, use a Password Manager.

Password Managers are amazing as they will store all of your passwords in them, and you only need to remember the master password. 1Password and LastPass are a couple of really good ones. You should also look to apply complex passwords to all of your accounts and then store them in the password manager.

Industry standards currently feel that that 8 character passwords with a high level of complexity is adequate – I always recommend at least 12 characters.

You should also look to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on all of your accounts (where it is possible anyway). MFA is essentially adding a secondary layer to your passwords to prevent access. You get a code to put in every time you sign in to a new device or at regular intervals to ensure you are who you say. While it isn’t full proof, at least if someone does get hold of your passwords you are fairly safe… unless they’ve got your phone too.

Finally when it comes to security – common sense always prevails. If in doubt, do nothing and ask someone you know, like and trust.
