Warn all employees, regardless of position. Explain to them that valuable data is publicly available and educate them about the consequences.
Go over the individual violations per user. Where did it go wrong and with whom? What are the risks and discuss them with colleagues.
Agree on clear rules regarding passwords and/or update the existing rules. Review these and communicate them clearly.
Don’t forget to change old and “leaked” passwords immediately.
Is a password more than 6 months old? Change.
Set up a recurring action for everyone to change the password at set times.
Go through all best practices.
The best practices
Implement Multi-Factor Authentication
Passwords protect you, but what if your password has been leaked? Then you don’t have to worry if you have MFA! A second layer of security that ensures that only you can log in provides complete protection. It virtually eliminates all threats and risks associated with a hacked password.
Single Sign On (SSO) and a Password Manager
The combination of SSO and a Password Manager ensures that everyone in the enterprise can easily work in a security-first environment. It simplifies and eliminates the frustration of passwords and associated security management.
Education and Awareness training
Users will always be the weak link within a company when we talk about security. This is often due to a lack of interest or a lack of knowledge of the most common risks and threats. Solve this problem easily by sharing best practices in a bite-sized manner and providing training that transfers everything easily.
Do an assessment of your environment and yourself
Every few months, take some time to take a critical look at your online presence and passwords. Take actions where necessary, set up MFA and evaluate whether you have enough different layers of security. You also do this within your company, but go one step further. Have a technical look at your environment. Just like maintenance on your car, it is best to do this within the company every year.
backup, backup, backup
What you have double is harder to lose. What you have triple, even harder. Then imagine how challenging it must be when you have something four times? So logically make sure that you have backups at multiple locations of your data. Build a data protection strategy with your technical partner and make sure you are safe in the event of an attack or breach.
