What makes for good password hygiene? You might be surprised to learn that many of the “standard practices” we all use for our passwords are actually bad. How many times have you reused passwords? If you’re like my family, you have password “buckets.” This password is for finance, one for retail, and the other one for Netflix and streaming. You may even have several variations of those passwords.

Most of the time, you would be better off picking four random words that you can easily remember, rather than using a simple word or date with minor changes and amendments added to the end. (“Just add a '!' to the end,” you say!)

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR EMPLOYEES ON CYBERSECURITY?
➡️ First and foremost, Don’t Blame Your Employees
Many people look at the news of a massive data breach and conclude that it’s all the fault of some incompetent employee that clicked on the wrong thing. But in truth, it's more of the organizations fault for not properly training that employee and putting a failsafe in place.
If an employee of your company fell for a hack, it's your responsibility. Are you prepared for that?

How to protect your business from becoming the next big cybersecurity breach The recent ransomware attack on one of the US’s largest fuel pipelines, Colonial, has led President Biden to release an executive order mandating that the federal government significantly improve cyber security within its networks.

FALSE! It has so much more to do with the training you have given the employee.
If you only cut your grass once a year it would be a mess and full of weeds, if you only train your employees once a year your cybersecurity will be much of the same!

Major US pipeline halts operations after ransomware attack

If you haven’t heard, a few days ago the Colonial Pipeline was attacked by a cyber gang and fell victim to an aggressive ransomware attack.

Colonial Pipeline Co., which operates a 5,500-mile pipeline that delivers 45% of the gasoline and jet fuel supplied to the U.S. East Coast, said Friday that it had been the victim of a ransomware attack.

Unfortunately in the few short days that colonial has been scrambling to get back online… this ONE group of hackers have been busy: claiming 3 new victims.

Would your business be able to defend against an attack like this?

Major US pipeline halts operations after ransomware attack

WASHINGTON (AP) — "The operator of a major pipeline system that transports fuel across the East Coast said Saturday it had been victimized by a ransomware attack and had halted all pipeline operations to deal with the threat. The attack is unlikely to affect gasoline supply and prices unless it leads to a prolonged shutdown of the pipeline, experts said.

Colonial Pipeline did not say what was demanded or who made the demand. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out by criminal hackers who scramble data, paralyzing victim networks, and demand a large payment to decrypt it."
