PASSWORD DEVELOPMENT
•   Basic Concepts
•   Length of Password (8 char min. 10+ < Preferable)
•   Complexity of Password (As random as possible)
•   Use lowercase, uppercase, numbers, and symbols in a random sequence.




                                                                           11
PASSWORD TIPS

•   Use a passphrase so it is easy to remember.
•   Change passwords if your email or system has a virus.




                                                            12
WORKING REMOTELY
• Working remotely provides many professionals with the freedom to complete
  work related tasks from almost any location.


• The challenge is that many are unaware of the security vulnerabilities and
  regular maintenance required to protect their devices.




                                                                               13
BEST PRACTICES: SOFTWARE
•   Ensure virus protection is installed, enabled, and up to date.
•   Ensure Windows Firewall is turned ON.
•   Ensure all software applications like Java and Flash are up to date.
•   NEVER install software that is not necessary for work related tasks.
•   NEVER allow non-BBBS employees to use installed software.




                                                                           14
BEST PRACTICES: PASSWORDS
•   Protect passwords that are used to access BBBS information.
•   Ensure your machine have STRONG passwords.
•   Ensure that passwords are changed a MINIMUM of 6 months.
•   Ensure all mobile devices have a timeout function that lock the screen.
•   NEVER use the “Remember this password” function in an internet browser.
•   Use software like LastPass to properly secure passwords.




                                                                              15
BEST PRACTICES: INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
•   Invest in a backup solution and back it up once every two weeks. (flash drive, external
    HD, etc.)
•   Protect devices by enabling a lock and wipe function on mobile devices such as tablets
    and smartphones.
•   ALWAYS ensure that all BBBS information is encrypted.
•   Remove unnecessary information when it is no longer needed on the machine.
•   Ensure that when you work remotely that you do not leave your computer unattended for
    any period of time.




                                                                                              16
