Welcome back. I hope you had fun over the Christmas/New Year/Winterval (delete as appropriate) break.
If you’re lucky, you’re not returning to a mountain of email that less considerate internet users and spammers sent you while you were neglecting your inbox.
But chances are that many of you, after a couple of weeks away from the office, will find yourselves desperately trying to recall a password to access a work-related service or account.
Wouldn’t life have been easier if all of your passwords were “Password1”? How much simpler would that have been?
Well, simple is definitely the right word. But safe it most certainly would not be.
Make one of your 2016 security resolutions to get a proper handle on passwords. You should never reuse passwords, and your passwords should not be predictable or easy to crack.
In fact, in my opinion, if you can remember all of your passwords you’re doing things the wrong way.
PS. Never mind about passwords, I once had a colleague who forgot how to turn on her computer after several weeks away. Hilarious… :)
