Cybercrime is becoming more and more an issue for businesses and independent users, and the causes for this phenomenon are many. Of course, there are different ways in which one can protect their own sensitive information (be it personal or business). It is namely one of these variants that we would like to touch upon in today’s short publication.
One part of the potential threat is the fact that many manufacturers have employees whose tasks are rather monotonous, repetitive, and with high chances of causing fatigue and loss of concentration. This, among other reasons, can lead to being more or less careless in certain aspects of their work. Another side of this question is the fact that most employees and people, in general, are not very good at inventing secure enough passwords. By saying “not very good at” we mean that they grow lazy. Now, this is a problem because the passwords they think of are easy to guess by hackers and other not well-intentioned people.
An idea as to what you could do in this case is to be careful of what permissions you give to third-party service providers for operating with your sensitive information. Instead, you could hire new employees to do this for you.
Another option is to use a software application such as OneLogin. Thus, you will not have to worry about forgetting passwords or losing the sheet of paper you have put them down on. With this software product you can do SSO (Single Sign-on) – sign in once and you’re done. This means that you use one password, log in, and you can then access your apps without worrying about the username or password any longer. One of OneLogin’s peculiarities is that it has MFA – multifactor authentication – capabilities. This means that you will have to login in multiple forms instead of just one. Furthermore, this application employs machine learning to identify of high-risk login attempts and consequently trigger protective mechanisms.
