We recently sent an update to all our clients regarding the ‘Ransom virus’ attacks. This is a follow up email regarding passwords.
With the success of this new attack, it is a good time to insist that all of the users in your company change their password.
Also, every Network has an Administrator password. This password allows the Administrator to make all security changes including changes to user passwords, service account passwords, and so on. Since this password is usually well-guarded, it is not changed very often.
What is a strong password
? – a minimum of eight (8) characters with a combination of upper case alpha characters, lower case alpha characters, at least one number, and at least one special character (e.g. !, #, %, ^, *, etc.). Ideally all users should have a strong password, as well as the Administrator. Password protection is only as good as the weakest link; it’s like having only one door unlocked!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office. Your Network Security is a high-priority for us. We want you to have ‘Syscon*fidence’ that your network is protected, and that’s a partnership between the two of us – thank you for your time.
