Take Action: Review your passwords now!

Apologies for the blunt headline. But if you've taken any interest in cyber security you'll know that it's a nasty world out there. And you're exposed.

Over the break, we did a review of all the USER logins and found that only 25% of all those registered were actually being used. With those stats, you're 4 times more exposed than you need be.

There are reasons for so many unused passwords. Staff having left being one, but the biggest appears to be, "let's setup logins for all the leadership (example) so everyone can publish." Good intentions for sure but take some time to review who your USERS are.

Our advice, if you're unsure if someone needs access, delete their logins. If they are in fact requiring access, then they'll contact you if they can't login.

And if it's been awhile since you last chnaged your password, we encourage you to do so. Now.

Managing USER logins is easy; see our cheat sheet here.
