  5. 5. So, Have You Used These? • About a fifth of you are probably realizing you use these types of passwords – Don’t worry, we all do at some point • If this is the case, change your passwords ASAP • If you’ve been using a generally weak password, change them fast
  6. 6. Do You Have a Backup Plan? • Whether it’s before, during, or after changing your password, also establish a really good backup plan • Backups prevent against any single point of failure including: – Accidental deletion – Account hack – Server downtime – Missing documents during eDiscovery
