Don’t Let a Bad Password Cripple You
• Don’t let one bad, repetitive (used among multiple
accounts) password lead to someone hacking into
– Differentiate passwords between accounts (especially
social vs. sensitive personal ones i.e. online banking)
– One strong password is better than several weak ones
Don’t Make Your Password Any of
• Your partner, child, or pet’s
name, possibly followed by
a 0 or 1
• The last 4 digits of your
social security number
• 123 or 1234 or 123456
• Your city, college, or sports
6. Date of birth – yours, your partner’s or your child’s
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
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
– Accidental deletion
– Account hack
– Server downtime
– Missing documents during eDiscovery
