Making sure passwords are secure is important for small business owners

Published:

Internet security concerns are growing for small business owners, with attacks becoming faster and more furious in recent years. Newer technology such as cloud computing, web logins and email are have usernames and passwords that can be easily infiltrated if users are not careful.

A recent blog post for the Washington Post shared some ideas to help small business owners with their passwords.

Making a strong password is imperative for business users who want to make sure they won't experience a security breach. A few tips from the blog on how to create strong passwords include having eight or more characters, using a combination of letters and numbers, and not including any relevant dates.  

Another tip for managing all the passwords needed by small business owners is to use a password manager. According to the blog, a password manager is a digital safe that organizes passwords by type and category. These solutions can help make sure passwords are protected and that they don't need to be replaced. 

While having strong and safe passwords is important for small business owners, they still should consider purchasing cyberliability insurance to protect against potential computer attacks
