Cyber Smart Week
Check out your online self!!
Take a closer look at your online security this Cyber Smart Week.
One of the best things you can do to keep yourself safe online is to have a different password for each account. This #CyberSmartWeek, why not settle in for a little life admin and make unique passwords, starting with your important accounts #getcybersmart www.cert.govt.nz/cybersmart
Unique passwords help keep you safe in case your account data is compromised in a data breach, or guessed by someone untoward. When your passwords are unique, even if someone gets your password they only get into one account, instead of having free reign on your online identity.
The key points for unique passwords are: • If you use the same password for everything, if that password gets leaked or lost, you need to change all of your passwords • You may not know that someone has got hold of your password until it’s too late – if you’re using the same one for everything the damage could already be done.
